Product Introduction

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum, US $88 for 1 oz., promises to help you regain your youthful-looking skin, specifically by delivering the following beauty benefits to your skin:

  • Significantly boost your skin’s moisture levels in two ways: first, by adding a protective barrier on the surface of your skin to prevent water in your skin from evaporating, and, second, by introducing significant amounts of moisturizers to your skin.
  • Improve your skin’s ability to capture and hold in moisture with long term use.
  • Correct and reverse signs of skin aging with retinol.
  • Lighten dark spots and brighten your overall complexion.

Murad is a dermatologically developed and tested line of products that now includes skin care, dietary supplements, and wellness programs.

Ingredients

Murad Youth Renewal Serum
  • Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate: Functions as retinol would, this Vitamin A derivative is less irritating for most skin types, works to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while also lightening dark skin imperfections by inhibiting melanin.
  • Ceramides: Helps rebuild your skin’s surface layer to improve its protective properties so as to keep moisture locked in and make your skin more resilient to damage caused by UC and other environmental factors, including pollution, other allergens and heat.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: Replaces the significantly dwindling levels of lost hyaluronic acid in your skin, effectively attracting more moisture to your skin’s surface, keeping your skin comfortably hydrated over a longer period of time.

Directions

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum must be integrated with your nighttime regimen because of its retinol derivative content. Also, because of retinol, this product may cause skin irritation so gradually work into your skin and into your routine to prevent the product from unnecessarily reacting with your skin.

Advantages

  • Product is well-formulated to provide dry, aging skin a moisture boost that comes with a wrinkle corrective function through its retinol content.
  • Formula is free from hormone-disrupting parabens, pore-clogging sulfates, and allergy-inducing glutens.
  • Product claims are backed by positive findings from a Murad-sponsored study that reported 98 per cent and 88 per cent of subjects claimed their skin appeared more radiant while wrinkles became less noticeable, respectively, in just 2 weeks of continuous product application.

Disadvantages

  • A wide array of protective antioxidants is noticeably lacking from the formulation which are vital when restoration of skin health is the objective.
  • Formula incorporates retinol which, while it has corrective functions, makes your skin become more easily damaged by UV with long-term use.
  • Product contains highly irritating ingredients, including butylene glycol, fragrances and artificial colorants which makes this product not recommended for use by people with sensitive and problematic skin.

Conclusion

With moisture restoration being the primary goal of the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum, it is normal to expect more skin moisturizing and conditioning ingredients folded into the formula. However, that’s not the case. Even more disappointing is how this product’s formula neglected the inclusion of antioxidants. At US $88, you simply deserve a better formulated product.

Product Description

Vichy Celludestock Night Time Over Night Destocking and Cellulite Treatment, US $53 for 150 ml, promises to deliver for you improved skin internal structure and enhanced external appearance. With regular use, this product commits to deliver the following skin care benefits:

  • Visibly smoother skin within just 1 week of continuous product application.
  • Noticeably reduced appearance of cellulites in just 2 weeks of product use.
  • Make application areas appear firmer and slimmer over time

Vichy was founded some 80 years ago using Vichy Thermal Spa Water at the heart of its research-based products, and continues on with this tradition today.

Ingredients

Vichy Celludestock
  • Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water: Consists of 15 minerals, it quenches skin that is in need of a serious nutrient-boost, and which gradually brings back skin health and youthful appeal.
  • Pure Caffeine (5%): Improves metabolism and drainage, this ingredient is a well-established vasodilator, causing veins underneath application areas to open wide and receive a significant increase in fluid circulation, draining stuck fluids and fats while simultaneously improving the absorption of nutrients to heal skin.
  • Lipodicine: a proprietary ingredient that helps inhibit fat build up and bulging of existing fats, most especially when you are undergoing chronic stress or, have been following an unhealthy lifestyle.
  • Adipo-stim: Formulated with Zingiber and Dioschol, this proprietary ingredient helps melt and drain fat storage, causing product application areas to look slimmer and cellulites to appear much less noticeable when viewed from the skin surface.

Directions

Use Vichy Celludestock Night Time Over Night Destocking and Cellulite Treatment must be generously applied on cellulite-affected areas of your skin at night. Vigorously massage in the product to blend and incorporate well into your skin.

Advantages

  • Formula has been guaranteed by manufacturer to be hypoallergenic and may be used safely on sensitive and problematic skin types.
  • Product has been formulated with proprietary ingredients backed by a company founded on a well-established research culture.
  • Product enhances sleep, the lack of which is considered as a major contributor to the development and build up of cellulites.
  • Product efficacy is backed up by an independent research ascertaining formula effectiveness in reducing cellulites caused by sleeplessness.

Disadvantages

  • Product likely masks only the cellulite problem since topical solutions are unable to reach and solve the root causes of cellulites which consist of trapped fats and the tough fibers that lock these in.
  • Continuous, long-term product use will unlikely result to incremental benefits that improve the way your cellulites appear .
  • Details of study alluded to by manufacturer to provide proof of efficacy has not been detailed.
  • Product has limited accessibility.

Conclusion

Vichy Celludestock Night Time Over Night Destocking and Cellulite Treatment, like any other cellulite and firming creams, do not directly tackle the root causes of your cellulite problems. At best, this product will only temporarily cause your cellulites to appear less noticeable as the vasodilating effects of caffeine take effect. As for inhibiting cellulite build up, you know you need more proof to believe a claim like that.

  • Product contains fragrance which may cause skin irritations and allergies, and therefore may not make this product suitable for use of people with sensitive and problematic skin.
  • Product leaves skin with a stinging sensation which may be irritating to some skin types

Conclusion

Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum is exactly what your skin needs to restore its healthy state following stressful days and nights. Regular use almost guarantees you skin that’s healthier and more youthful looking. However, as an add-on to boost your regular regimen, this formula is pricey at US $99. You must seriously consider how it fits in your regimen and your beauty budget.

    Conclusion

    Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream sounds like a promising product from a promising beauty label. Unfortunately, that’s as far as it goes. This product is simply based on the age-old home remedy using eggs to revitalize the skin. When it is innovation that you’re looking for, the manufacturer falls short of its promise. Contrary to product commitment, this formula won’t eliminate layering in your routine because it offers too little that more products will be necessary.

    You should already be aware of the importance of using sunscreen daily. First of all, it can help reduce risk of skin cancer. Secondly, it is one of the most effective tools against premature skin aging. Adding it to your skincare routine can considerably delay the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other aging signs on your skin. The main problem is that some people make common mistakes that can affect how sunscreen works. Here are the most common mistakes that you should avoid.

    1. Using an Old Bottle of Sunscreen

    Using an Old Bottle of Sunscreen

    This is one of the biggest mistakes that most people make. They think the old bottle of sunscreen they found from years ago is still as effective. However, the active ingredients in sunscreen tend to deteriorate over time. Thus, its effectiveness may be reduced especially if the storage conditions are not followed.

    2. Not Using Enough

    Not Using Enough

    Ideally, the amount of sunscreen to be applied on the whole body should be approximately 1 ounce or the amount to fill one shot glass. Of course, you need to re-apply after sweating a lot or swimming in order to ensure maximum sun protection.

    3. Not Giving It Enough Time to Be Absorbed

    Not Giving It Enough Time to Be Absorbed

    Another common mistake people make is applying sunscreen then heading outdoors or swimming immediately afterwards. This is a big mistake; you should give the skin enough time to absorb the active ingredients of the sunscreen to ensure optimum effectiveness. Generally, you should apply sunscreen about 20 to 30 minutes before sun exposure.

    4. Not Protecting Your Lips

    Not Protecting Your Lips

    You also need to protect your lips from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Purchase a lip balm that offers SPF protection. If you will be participating in water activities, you should invest in a water-resistant lip balm that has at least SPF 15.

    5. Missing Important Areas

    Missing Important Areas

    Even though you think you have covered every part of your body, you may have missed one or two. The most commonly ignored areas are the ears, toes, collarbone and neckline. This will result to sunburn and can increase risk of skin cancer so you should be more careful when applying sunscreen.

    6. Not Utilizing SPF in Skincare Products

    Not Utilizing SPF in Skincare Products

    There are skincare products and makeup that also offer SPF protection. These, together with your regular sunscreen will ensure optimal sun protection. Check if your favorite moisturizer has a version that also offers around SPF 30 protection.

    7. Not Spreading Sunscreen Spray

    Not Spreading Sunscreen Spray

    Most people think there is no need to rub the surface and spread sunscreen spray. However, this is important if you want to have an even coverage. Otherwise, there are some areas that may not have enough coverage.

    8. Not Using Sunscreen during Cloudy Days

    Not Using Sunscreen during Cloudy Days

    Even when it is cloudy, the sun’s UV rays can still reach you and cause damage. This is why you still need to apply sunscreen even when the sun is covered by clouds. On a relative note, you should also apply sunscreen on areas that are covered by clothes especially if you will be spending a lot of time under the sun.

    Product Introduction

    Lancome Energie de vie Moisturizer, US $55 for 1.7 fl. oz., promises to revive, restore and protect your skin from the damaging and aging effects of pollution and stress. More specifically, this product aims to deliver the following skin health and beauty benefits:

    • Restores your skin’s health.
    • Relieves your skin from dullness and tired look.
    • Re-energizes your skin cells to speed up mechanisms that facilitate healthier, more beautiful skin to happen.
    • Provide your skin with antioxidants that shield your skin from UV and free radical damage down to the cellular levels.

    Lancome is one of the most trusted brands in skincare, with prominent products leading in the personal care, cosmetics, and fragrance markets.

    Ingredient Lists

    Lancome Energie De Vie Moisturizer
    • Goji Berry: Rich in antioxidants, this ingredient provides a rejuvenating effect on your skin, helping your skin bounce back from stress and fatigue while simultaneously preventing new skin damage to help your skin cope with the repairs necessary.
    • Lemon Balm: Has a calming and soothing effect on inflamed skin, which can help facilitate immediate healing from irritation as it helps tighten and smoothen your overall skin texture.
    • Vitamin E: Brings three very specific advantages for your skin which includes flooding your skin with moisture to plump it, help fortify your skin’s surface layer to restore its protective function, and boost your skin’s antioxidant protection to help your skin fight damage caused by UV and free radicals.
    • Gentian: Introduces sugars to your skin that help energize it and moisturize it at the same time.

    Directions

    Use Lancome Energie de vie Moisturizer after giving your skin a thorough cleanse that is followed by a toning process. Dot generous amounts of the product around skin that has been dried then spread evenly to cover all areas of your face, neck and chest.

    Advantages

    • Product is prepared with a lightweight formulation that won’t leave your skin greasy and sticky on the surface.
    • Manufacturer has pegged this product to be good for use on any skin type.
    • Product does not contain parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
    • Product commits to power up your skin and moisturize it in one step

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains several irritating ingredients, including fragrance, artificial colorants and alcohol, which can irritate your skin and likely cause long-term damage to your skin matrix.
    • Product seriously lacks a wide variety of antioxidants that can help your skin stay healthy and damage-free.
    • Contains polyethylene glycols (PEG), chemicals that can be highly sensitizing to any skin type but also has high affinity to bind with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogen, during manufacturing

    Final Verdict

    Lancome Energie de vie Moisturizer is a product that seems to have deliberately left out many other beneficial skin ingredients that would have contributed to this product’s goal of fighting skin stress and fatigue if only more thought was given to the formulation. Unfortunately, this product also infuses severely irritating and matrix damaging ingredients that compromise the health of your skin with regular, long-term product use.

    Disadvantages

    • Product uses phenoxyethanol and parabens as preservatives, both are highly toxic, and can affect vital organs in the body and their normal functioning.
    • Product contains menthol and fragrance ingredients that can cause severe skin irritations, which makes this product strongly not recommended for use by people with sensitive and problematic skin.

    Final Verdict

    Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Lotion contains powerful moisturizers and antioxidants that can certainly cause tired skin to become reawakened. That is, if you are willing to settle with highly toxic ingredients in your skin care product although, if you have sensitive skin, the highly sensitizing formula of this product does not earn it a seat in your regimen

    Product Introduction

    Clarins Body Fit Anti Cellulite Contouring Expert, US $70 for 6.9 oz., offers a solution to your pesky and persistent cellulite issues. More specifically, this product commits to deliver the following benefits for your skin:

    • Improve microcirculation which, in turn, improves nutritional content of your skin.
    • Boost moisture to plump, raise and firm up affected skin.
    • Improve skin metabolism and fluid drainage so as to expel unwanted fluid deposits that makes skin and cellulites budge even more.
    • Promote the better digestion of trapped fats to make your cellulites appear less visible.
    • Soothe deeper layers of your skin while leaving a smoothening effect on the surface layer

    Product was designed by Clarins, one of the big brands in skin care recognized the world over.

    Ingredient Lists

    Clarins Body Fit Anti Cellulite Contouring Expert
    • Quince Leaf Extract: Helps firm up skin and restore skin elasticity.
    • Water Mint: Helps improve fluid drainage and excretion of unwanted fats that help improve the appearance of cellulites.
    • Hazel Seed Oil: Nourishes and restores your skin’s healthy moisture levels to soften it and make it appear firmer and denser.
    • Caffeine: Improves microcirculation, as it opens up veins underneath application area, causing fluids to rush in and make skin appear plumper and cellulites less visible.
    • Escin: Derived from horse chestnut, helps restore proper and healthy fluid drainage to remove toxins and excess fluids that make your skin wobbly and rippled.
    • Menthol: Swells skin on the affected area to rid it of dimpling and the orange peel appearance of cellulites.

    Directions

    Use Clarins Body Fit Anti Cellulite Contouring Expert on freshly cleansed skin and apply with a vigorous massage for better product absorption. For best results, follow application instructions using Clarins’ Self Massage Body Contouring Method included with the product labels.

    Advantages

    • Product is recommended by the manufacturer for use on all skin types.
    • Product has been formulated with an in-house research and development efforts that discovered the cellulite reduction benefits that can be derived from Quince extract.
    • Quick absorbent, non-greasy formula that instantly plumps skin.
    • Manufacturer reports on the results of a study involving 84 women and 4 weeks of product use, 80 per cent said that their skin became firmer while cellulites appeared less noticeable.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains alcohol, butylene glycol, fragrance ingredients, and menthol — ingredients that are well-known to cause severe skin irritations, making this product highly not recommended for use by people with sensitive and problematic skin.
    • There is not enough evidence supporting product claim that Quince Leaf Extract can help fight saggy skin and cellulites, rather that this ingredient is best ingested to derive any health benefit.
    • Product does not offer any cumulative benefits that can be derived from regular, long-term use

    Final Verdict

    Clarins Body Fit Anti Cellulite Contouring Expert may be handing you the star ingredients necessary for you to achieve firmer, denser skin that makes cellulites fade into view. Products such as this, however, do not resolve the root causes of cellulites, and any benefit you may notice are short-lived and temporary.

    Product Introduction

    For mature, aging and increasingly damaged skin, REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, US $55 for 50 ml, offers a way out, using regular exfoliation to clean and clear your skin from imperfections and impurities. More specifically, this product offers you the following beauty benefits you see in just 10 minutes following product application:

    • Even out your skin tone.
    • Smoothen wrinkles and fine lines.
    • Tighten your pores.
    • Restore skin elasticity.
    • Lighten dark spots and brighten your overall skin complexion.
    • Regularly surface and eliminate foreign bodies and other impurities from your skin.

    REN is a brand that consciously creates products that are effective and yet safe and rid of toxic ingredients that can harm your skin and your overall health.

    Ingredient Lists

    REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
    • Glycolic Acid (6.5 %), Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, and Tartaric Acid: All botanically derived from fruits, restore skin health by gently sloughing off your skin, stimulating collagen production and causing newer, younger skin to rise to the surface.
    • Papain: Provides additional exfoliation while also supporting the enhancement of your skin complexion and calming of skin irritations.

    Directions

    Use REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask once weekly as a restorative component of your beauty regimen but, take note that product is not recommended for use on sensitive skin types and on newly shaved skin. For best results, manufacturer recommends this product to be used with REN Radiance Perfection Serum, and, for daily sunscreen protection and sheer coverage, use REN Satin Perfection BB Cream.

    Advantages

    • Product does not contain silicones, parabens, sulfates, triethanolamine, glycols, and polyethylene glycols.
    • Provides your skin with regular exfoliating care.
    • A consumer study involving 22 women revealed the following results in just 1 days of product use:
    • All said that their complexion became brighter.
    • 96 per cent said that their skin felt smoother and became firmer.
    • 95 per cent said that the product made their skin appear tighter and evenly toned.
    • 77 per cent saw improvements in the appearance of their fine lines and wrinkles.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a well-known neurotoxin that can affect your healthy and normal brain and nervous system functioning.
    • Product includes fragrance ingredients that can irritate any kind of skin but is most especially discouraged to be in contact with people who have sensitive and problematic skin.
    • Product contains denatured alcohol which dries out your skin instantly, and, with regular use, can cause permanent skin damages, including compromising the capability of your skin to capture, absorb and retain moisture.
    • Product may not contain several toxic chemicals however, it is sad how the manufacturer missed eliminating two of the most common and most skin damaging ingredients from its formulation, and that would be fragrance and drying alcohols.

    Final Verdict

    REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask would have been a welcome addition to your routine, particularly adding a weekly treatment that facilitates skin renewal. Unfortunately, when skin damaging ingredients are infused in the formula, the renewed skin that you just might see is worse, not better, than the current one that you are wearing.

    Product Introduction

    Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste, US $55 for 75 ml, promises to make your skin glow naturally like you’ve never seen it before. More specifically, this product commits to deliver for you the following beauty benefits:

    • Reveal healthier, glowing and more radiant skin with less to no damage.
    • Eliminate impurities from your skin to keep it clean and clear.

    This product is made by the Australian brand, Aesop, which markets itself as a brand that delivers only the highest quality organic and natural ingredients that are conscientiously formulated to bring about beneficial beauty benefits without the unnecessary trade offs, most especially when it comes to safety.

    Ingredient Lists

    Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste
    • Finely Ground Quartz: Provides a mild physical exfoliation to your skin to scrape off the damaged top layer and encourage higher amounts of collagen to be produced at higher rates.
    • Lactic Acid: Chemically designed but mild enough to help lift the damaged surface layer of your skin to help force a skin turnover to happen much sooner to reveal a more flawless layer that makes your skin glow with health.
    • Evening Primrose Oil: Rich in Omega-6 fatty acids which helps calm irritated skin, immediately relieving your skin from the exfoliating components in this formula.
    • Rosemary Leaf Oil: Has natural anti-inflammatory properties that helps bring a soothing relief to your skin.
    • Lavender Oil: Provides moisturizing benefits to your skin, while also providing antioxidant protection.

    Directions

    Use Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste as a weekly means of freeing your skin from damaged skin, impurities and product residues, applying accordingly with your skin’s sensitivity to exfoliation. Apply on wet skin, lather then rinse off.

    Advantages

    • Product provides your skin with an exfoliating experience from the combined abrasive power of quartz and the dead skin lifting action of lactic acid to renew your tired and damaged surface skin layer.
    • Causes newer, younger, more refined skin to surface and replace the damaged top layer without causing unnecessary damage to your skin.
    • Includes anti-inflammatory ingredients that immediately relieves skin from the irritating sensation that follows an exfoliation to prevent damage.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains menthol ingredients which can cause your skin to become irritated and possibly damaged with regular use.
    • Product uses phenoxyethanol as a preservative; it is a toxic chemical known to cause adverse effects on the central nervous system at toxic levels.
    • Product contains fragrance ingredients, which are among the identified skincare ingredients that can actually cause any skin type to become irritated easily and compromise the spongelike qualities of your skin with regular use over the longer term.
    • Lactic acid in the formulation gets rinsed off, limiting its exfoliating properties to act on your skin and turn it over rapidly and properly.

    Final Verdict

    Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste could have possibly become a critical part of your regimen to purify and clarify your skin periodically. Trouble is, it’s another exfoliant that gets washed off even before it has sufficiently effected its purpose.

    Product Introduction

    Rodial Dragon’s Blood Velvet Cream, US $90 for 1.7 fl. oz., offers varied approaches in restoring your skin’s ideal moisture levels. More specifically, this product promises to deliver the following benefits:

    • Provides optimal hydration to your skin by creating a better system of moisture restoration that covers every known aspect necessary to relieve skin from chronic dryness.
    • Relieves skin from inflammation, primarily those caused by extreme skin dryness.

    Rodial is a brand founded by Maria Hatzistefanis, an international journalist, in 1999 with products containing the collagen boosting ingredient, Pomegranate Ellagic Tannin.

    Ingredient Lists

    Rodial Dragon’s Blood Velvet Cream
    • Hyaluronic Acid: Makes your skin better hydrated by attracting moisture in the surroundings which gives your skin a better hydrated feeling and a plumper skin that lasts for longer periods of time.
    • Gransil: A patented ingredient designed to boost your skin’s moisture content while simultaneously maintaining the potency of the ingredients rather than adding each one separately into the formulation.
    • Vitamin B3: Also Niacinamide, improves the nutrition content of your skin by improving microcirculation, while simultaneously supporting skin brightening and providing antioxidant protection.
    • Carob Seed Extract: Improves the rate of skin repairs and rejuvenation to restore your skin’s health much sooner.
    • Hydromanil: A patented ingredient that works by retaining the ingredient molecules on the surface of your skin which attracts moisture to the surface and allows for uninterrupted moisture sustenance that lasts for up to 8 hours.
    • Squalene: Adds moisture to your skin while also relieving your skin from irritation and other symptoms of inflammation.

    Directions

    Use Rodial Dragon’s Blood Velvet Cream at least once daily but, for best results, it is highly recommended that you use the product together with your evening and morning skincare routines. The product may also be safely reapplied throughout the day as your skin feels moisture deprived and in need of a boost.

    Advantages

    • Product includes Niacinamide, a most sought after skin care ingredient that significantly improves cellular mechanisms necessary for repair and regeneration.
    • Takes varied approaches to skin moisturization that includes various facets such as flooding skin with moisture but also attracting water to the surface of the skin and then continuously releasing stored moisture for hours following application.
    • Makes skin supple and soft for long periods, according to several user reviews

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains fragrance ingredients, one of the most irritating ingredients that can suffer any skin type, but most especially people with sensitive and problematic skin.
    • Product contains polyethylene glycols (PEG), toxic chemicals that can bind with 1,4 dioxane, a confirmed carcinogen, at any point during product manufacturing.
    • Product offers moisturization only and misses out on other potentially good additions to bring about great skin care, including antioxidants and peptides

    Final Verdict

    Rodial Dragon’s Blood Velvet Cream may contain moisture-giving and restoring ingredients in skin care. However, in the real world, your skin simply needs more than just a hydration boost to revitalize it and keep it healthy everyday and every night.

    Product Introduction

    Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm, US $65 for 50 ml, commits to deliver for you new skin that radiates with health and visibly renewed in just 28 days of regular product use. Skin becomes healthier, plumper, and more resistant to damage that causes aging.

    Elemis is a beauty brand that bring together science, nature and aromatics to work on a common goal, and that is, to improve your skin health systematically and safely.

    Ingredient Lists

    Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm
    • Sea Buckthorn Oil: Contains Omega-7 fatty acids that help restore skin’s healthy moisture levels, relieve and calm skin from inflammation.
    • Padina Pavonica: An algae that can be naturally derived from the Mediterranean, has been discovered by Elemis to improve skin by enhancing elasticity and skin synthesis which causes your skin to tighten and appear smoother.
    • Chlorella Vulgaris: Conditions your skin and boosts its protective antioxidant levels to block cell damaging free radicals and UV.
    • Tree Fern Extract: Improve skin elasticity, causing skin to be pulled up, appear denser and noticeably improve in tone and structure.
    • Ucuuba Seed Extract: Has strong moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties that relieves your skin of dryness while also promoting faster healing and restoration of denser skin.

    Directions

    Use Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm with your daytime and nighttime skincare routine. To apply, dot and spread evenly on neck and chest.

    Advantages

    • Product claim of causing skin to be renewed in just 28 days is based on an independent clinical trial carried out in 2015.
    • An independent consumer trial done on 114 users who were asked to us products for at least 4 weeks yielded the following results:
    • 82 per cent of subjects said their skin felt and looked silkier.
    • 77 per cent claimed they noticed improvements in the depth and overall appearance of their fne lines.
    • 75 per cent said that the product helped improved their skin’s dry aged look.
    • 74 per cent agreed that the product caused their skin to become firmer and more supple.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains menthol and fragrance ingredients which are highly likely to cause skin irritation on any skin type, but which most especially makes this product not recommended for use by people with sensitive and problematic skin types.
    • Product contains drying alcohols that dries out your skin in an instant and, with regular use over the longer term, causes permanent damages to your skin matrix, making it less efficient in capturing and retaining moisture.
    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin used as a product preservative, high up into its ingredients list which means that any beneficial ingredient this product’s formula contains is present in very low concentrations that are unlikely to be potent enough to deliver any visible skin improvements.

    Final Verdict

    Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm contains the ingredients necessary to keep skin on your neck and chest defy gravity and other factors of aging for longer. Unfortunately, some questionable ingredients might compromise your skin even more.

    Product Introduction

    Clarins Gentle Exfoliator, US $39 for 4.2 fl. oz., commits to deliver for you, skin that is better and more evenly toned, and more specifically help bring about the following specific beneficial ingredients for your skin:

    • Eliminate the dead and damaged top layer of your skin.
    • Draw out excess oil, dead skin, impurities and product residues stuck in your pores to prevent infection and more easily absorb the beneficial ingredients of your moisturizers.
    • Even out your skin complexion by tightening your pores and smoothening your skin’s surface.
    • Encourage skin repair and rejuvenation.

    This product has been formulated by Clarins, one of the most recognizable brands in beauty, skin care, and fragrance, that has been designing products in these categories since it was founded by Jacques Courtin-Clarins in 1954.

    Ingredient Lists

    Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen
    • Glycolic and Salicylic Acid: Provide your skin with mild and gentle exfoliation that lifts the top layer of your skin to resurface new skin by improving collagen production happening deep within your skin.
    • Arginine: Amino acids that help your skin heal from irritation, wounds, and swelling that can lead to permanent damages if not arrested and corrected properly and in a timely manner; also improves skin synthesis and structuring.
    • Tamarind Extract: Has natural exfoliating and skin lightening properties that helps bring about a brighter and more attractive complexion that makes your skin glow with health.
    • White Nettle Extract: Improves your skin’s microcirculation which, in turn, enhances the nutritional content of your cells and supplies the energy your skin cells need to make repairs, regeneration and turnovers happen efficiently.

    Directions

    Use Clarins Gentle Exfoliator once up to thrice weekly depending on how your skin responds to this product and your personal experience in using exfoliating products before. Use product only on freshly cleansed skin. To apply, wet a cotton pad with the product and cover your face, neck and chest using upward strokes, leave on.

    Advantages

    • Product provides your skin with a regular, gentle way to clear your skin of impurities to make it glow with health.
    • Product revives your dull and lifeless skin, making it more vibrant and beaming with light.
    • Product is widely accessible in stores and online.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains highly irritating ingredients, including butylene glycol, fragrance and menthol, which can all cause your skin to become permanently damaged with regular, long term use.
    • Product causes a stinging sensation on the skin which can vary in intensity depending on your skin type but, one which generally signals skin irritation.
    • Product contains drying alcohols which compromises your skin’s health, particularly its spongelike ability to capture and keep moisture in.
    • Manufacturer failed to provide efficacy or consumer perception studies to demonstrate product’s ability to deliver on its various commitments

    Final Verdict

    Clarins Gentle exfoliator will quite possibly have been a helpful clarifying solution to add in your weekly skincare routine. It’s just sad how a company that has been around in skincare for so many years still chooses to neglect the irritable effect of common ingredients already well-known to compromise skin health.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    SkinPro Neck Firming Cream is made from a combination of ingredients which target to deliver five very specific results aimed at improving your skin issues around the neck and chest areas:

    • First, SkinPro Neck Firming Cream significantly boosts the skin’s moisture levels to fill in gaps and increase density of the skin
    • Second, it corrects damage already done and which appear on the skin matrix as wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of skin aging
    • Third, this product protects your skin from free radical damage, including UV, to help skin cope with repairs without having to deal with new skin problems
    • Fourth, prevent skin inflammation which causes skin to show signs of skin damage
    • Fifth, improve skin synthesis and strengthen skin to make it more resistant and more resilient to damage and inflammation

    Five key ingredients, all highly recognized for their power to restore skin, combine to make SkinPro Neck Firming Cream your dream anti-aging cream come true: Argireline, Matrixyl 3000, Marine Collagen, Retinol, and Squalane.

    INGREDIENTS

    Skinpro Neck Firming Cream
    • Matrixyl 3000: Made up of peptides designed to hasten collagen and elastin production, followed by skin cell renewal and turnover
    • Argireline: Made from a peptide that paralyzes and stretches back the muscles on your face so that skin on top of it becomes unwrinkled, in effect, smoothening out creases, making wrinkles and fine lines practically unnoticeable.=
    • Retinol: Forces the top layer of the skin to be sloughed off so that the younger layer of skin underneath it can rise
    • Marine Collagen: Rich in amino acids and antioxidants, it significantly supplies the skin with much-needed skin precursors to regenerate and renew skin.
    • Squalane: Derived from vegetable oils, this ingredient is deeply nourishing, very closely resembles the natural squalene produced by the skin; also helps prevent dullness, dryness and irritation.
    • Hyaluronic Acid: Attracts water molecules which instantly rehydrates skin and brings back healthy moisture levels

    DIRECTIONS

    SkinPro Neck Firming Cream is recommended for nighttime application only because of its retinol content. Apply product only on thoroughly cleansed skin. Tone before application. Regularly exfoliate neck and chest skin to enhance the beneficial effects of this product.

    Apply sunscreen on your neck and chest daily as the product has photosensitizing effect on skin.

    ADVANTAGES

    • Multifunctional cream specially formulated for the neck and chest
    • Contains antioxidants that protects skin from further damage
    • Made up of anti-inflammatory ingredients that enhances skin’s resilience against damage
    • Contains skin damage correcting retinol
    • Promotes skin resiliency

    DISADVANTAGES

    • Product contains squalane which makes it not suitable for use on sensitive and problematic skin types
    • Full product ingredients list is not available
    • There are no product or consumer studies facilitated or reported to support product claims

    CONCLUSION

    There is no easy way to shop for a skincare product, not even when you are certain that a jar of SkinPro Neck Firming Cream will complement your nighttime regimen. That fact is because of the simple reason that different people react differently to the same products. You may have to try it to see but, the real key is understanding what’s in it first.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    Is skin skin on your neck and chest turning out to be no match for gravity? Perhaps it is time to call in tarte Maracuja Neck Treatment, US $44 for 1.7 oz., the anti-aging cream which its makers are claiming helps your skin defy gravity.

    The neck and chest area are often neglected in skincare because of too much attention bestowed on the face. Tarte Maracuja Neck Treatment is committed to balance the focus now by delivering the following:

    • Instantly, deeply moisturizing skin which makes skin better toned, dewier and more supple to the touch
    • Re-energize skin cells to power repair and rejuvenation processes
    • Speeds up the normally sluggish process of skin renewal and regeneration
    • Improves synthesis of skin precursors and therefore that of firmness and elasticity

    The company also reported on the result of a consumer satisfaction study among 30 women. The results of which are summarized below:

    • 97 per cent agreed that they noticed improvements
    • All said their skin felt better moisturized and smoother to the touch
    • 94 per cent said their skin looked brighter, firmer and better toned
    • Up to 88 per cent noticed improvements in the appearance of wrinkles and signs of skin aging

    INGREDIENTS

    Tarte Maracuja Neck Treatment
    • Maracuja: Made with moisturizing and revitalizing fatty acids that brings back the skin’s health and natural glow; also contains high levels of Vitamin C which powers up skin cells, protects skin from free radical damage, and brightens overall complexion
    • Sodium Hyaluronate: Acts like a moisture magnet to immediately restore skin’s healthy hydration levels and keep it that way for a long period of time
    • Algae Extract: Aids in skin renewal
    • Peptides: Facilitates the increased production levels of collagen

    DIRECTIONS

    ADVANTAGES

    • Free from parabens, phthalates, mineral oil sulfates, triclosan and gluten
    • Contains peptides which hasten skin renewal and improves skin elasticity
    • Contains antioxidants which helps protect skin from further damage, inflammation and aging
    • Contains hyaluronic acid for dramatic improvements in skin moisture levels
    • Multi-tasking, multi-functional formulation
    • Offers specialized care for neck and chest skin
    • Product claims are backed up by a consumer perception study

    DISADVANTAGES

    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a highly toxic chemical which, although allowed by the US Food and Drug Administration, it can accumulate in the body and cause you to become sick
    • Product contains PEGs, which carries high probability of becoming contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, a carcinogen
    • Product contains menthol and fragrance, which can be highly irritating, particularly to sensitive and problematic skin types

    CONCLUSION

    You must have already learned that not everyone requires a neck cream. If you have mature skin and think you need a neck cream at this point, a Tarte Maracuja Neck Treatment may be a good candidate since it is a product specially formulated to care for skin on your neck. However, keep in mind that results will always depend on how well your skin responds to the treatment.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream, US $30.00 for 1.6 oz., promises to give you a lift and a radiance you don’t remember when you last saw on your skin. This anti-aging cream claims to lift, moisturize and smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines on your face, neck and chest. With continued use, you can also expect your skin to appear blemish-free and get glowing with a natural radiance and newfound skin vitality.

    In four weeks of regular use, you will see better toned skin that’s firmer, tighter and appear to be located higher. Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream also contains energizing complexes that help return the vigor in both the appearance and performance of your aging skin.

    All of these beneficial ingredients are captured in a single bottle. Inside, a formulation that complements the natural power of your skin to treat, repair and rejuvenate itself.

    INGREDIENTS

    No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream
    • Peptides: Amino acids that help replenish skin’s collagen levels so that repair and rejuvenation can begin; also improves better coordination among skin cells
    • Citric Acid: Gently exfoliates skin, eliminates the damaged top layer and allows newer, younger skin to surface
    • Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate: A stable derivative of Vitamin C, it re-powers up skin cells to start churning out skin precursors like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which are all necessary for youthful skin to begin
    • Shea Butter And Other Skin Moisturizers: Hydrates and softens skin; keeps skin healthily moisturized for longer hours

    DIRECTIONS

    Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream is intended for use when you sleep only. Enhance the rejuvenating power of this product by exfoliating before application or cleansing on alternate days. Make sure to tone before you apply. Always order this product below your thicker formulated products.

    For better, faster results, use Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream with the Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Day Cream.

    ADVANTAGES

    • Product will work out fine results for people with dull and dry skin
    • Lightweight and absorbs quickly
    • Blends in well with skin
    • Does not leave skin surface greasy
    • Hydration, including beneficial effects last
    • Leaves skin with a silky, velvety feel
    • Contains powerful peptides that helps lift and firm up skin
    • Dramatically increases skin’s collagen level
    • Hypoallergenic
    • Has mild exfoliating properties that help flush out dead and damaged skin

    DISADVANTAGES

    • Product uses phenoxyethanol as a preservative which is a neurotoxin
    • Product contains butylene glycol and fragrances which can irritate people with sensitive skin quite badly
    • Product contains parabens which suffer the endocrine system and hormones
    • Product is not recommended for sensitive and problematic skin types
    • There are no studies presented to backup product claims

    CONCLUSION

    Boots No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream may be made of the basic ingredients an aging skin needs to stay young and healthy. However, it is only but realistic to assume that the formulation it carries cannot possibly work out the same results for all users. That’s what makes skincare individually challenging. If you think this product will solve your skin aging concerns, then maybe it’s worth a try but, keep in mind that it’s all about compatibility between the product and your skin.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    Manufacturers can come up with all sorts of beauty care season after season but, one thing is clear, sunscreen is always in. The Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen $42.50 for 1 oz., provides you with chemical sunscreen protection at SPF 50 and with the power to tame both UVA and UVB. Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing the UVA and UVB, then transforming these to less toxic, less harmful derivatives like heat.

    Coming from the sunscreen line, Anthelios OX from La Roche-Posay, Daily Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen is the first product of its kind to be released under the label that puts antioxidants at the center of its formulation. This product is formulated with an antioxidant complex that consists of Baicalin, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. Combined, this power of three shields the skin from UV while also revitalizing skin health.

    What else can you expect? Unlike most sunscreens that are presented as lotions and creams that often leave a white streak on the face, Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen is formulated as a serum. What that means is no more white streak, no more greasiness on the surface, and more absorbent product that practically becomes invisible in just a few minutes following application.

    Over time, expect to see lighter and brighter skin, free from blemishes, age spots and acne marks. With regular use, effectively prevent premature wrinkles and other signs of sin aging.

    INGREDIENTS

    Anthelios Aox Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen
    • Avobenzone (2.68%), Homosalate (9.60%), Octisalate (2.88%), Octocrylene (5.38%), Oxybenzone (3.46%): Sunscreen
    • Baicalin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E: Tops up the UV protection provided by sunscreen actives to better shield skin from free radical damage caused by UV
    • Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Caprylyl Glycol: Skin moisturizers that help keep skin well conditioned

    DIRECTIONS

    Apply Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum With Sunscreen liberally on your face and skin at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every two hours throughout the day.

    This product, like any other sunscreen product, will not be able to provide you with 100 per cent UV protection. Complement sunscreen application with physical barriers such as wearing a hat or using an umbrella when out in the sun. Still the best protection is to stay in the shade as much as you can.

    Refrain from using on children younger than six months old without consulting with a health practitioner. Pregnant and breastfeeding women must generally avoid using this product to err on the side of safety.

    ADVANTAGES

    • Multifunctional: serves as sunscreen, moisturizer and provides antioxidant protection
    • Helps prevent premature aging
    • Improves the appearance of skin imperfection caused by UV damage

    DISADVANTAGES

    • Avobenzone, Homosalate, Octisalate, Octocrylene, Oxybenzone, and other chemical sunscreen actives can be highly toxic
    • Two-thirds of ingredients come after phenoxyethanol, a preservative, including moisturizers and antioxidants which means these are present in the product in negligible quantities

    CONCLUSION

    Sunscreen have to be a staple in your daytime skincare routine, if it isn’t already. Anthelios AOX Daily Antioxidant Serum functions as a moisturizer and sunscreen in one. While that’s a plus, understanding the labels better is key to know whether or not this sunscreen fits your sun protection philosophy.

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

    Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Sensitive, US $ 14.99 for 3 oz., offers daily sun protection for all skin types, including for sensitive skin. This product is a cut above most regular, highly commercialized sunscreen products for the following reasons:

    • This product only contains physical sunscreen actives, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which are well-known to capably provide skin with effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection without the toxicity concerns raised against chemical sunscreen actives.
    • This product is infused with powerful antioxidants to provide skin added protection from UV and free radicals. Moreover, antioxidants help keep skin health and vitality.

    The other fascinating detail about this product is that is packaged in a smart bottle that is able to detect UV and indicate its intensity by turning blue. The darker the shade of blue, the more intense the UV is. Now, you won’t ever forget to apply and reapply your sunscreen. Hang it with a chain on your bag to see when it turns blue.

    INGREDIENTS

    Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen
    • Zinc Oxide (10%), Titanium Oxide (5%): Physical sunscreen actives that protect skin from UV without damaging your skin nor endangering your overall health
    • Tocopheryl Acteate: Stable derivative of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant and moisturizer that helps rejuvenate skin and protect it from damage, including UV
    • Beeswax, Caprylyl Glycol: Along with other moisturizers and skin conditioners, keep skin well-hydrated

    DIRECTIONS

    Use Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Sensitive every morning. Apply liberally on your face and body at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply throughout the day.

    Use this product with other recommended ways to protect skin from UV, including sunglasses, broad brimmed hats, clothing pieces with tightly knit fibers, and staying in the shade in midday.

    ADVANTAGES

    • Earned a Rating of 1 from the Environmental Working Group, a private organization of scientists working for consumers’ welfare; this means that this product has very low potential for causing any hazard.
    • Uses physical sunscreen actives only which is safer and non-toxic

    • Has SPF 30+
    • Free from fragrance and parabens

    • Contains moisturizers, led by Vitamin E and beeswax to keep from drying out skin
    • Graded to be very low risk for the occurrence of irritation
    • Product is bottled in a container that turns blue when UV is detected; the darker the shade, the higher the intensity of UV

    DISADVANTAGES

    • Leaves a white streak which makes it unsuitable for use under makeup
    • Some varieties may contain phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin, and polyethylene glycol (PEG) , a toxin which may become contaminated with 1, 4 dioxane, a carcinogen.

    CONCLUSION

    Sunscreens were invented for all the right reasons: protection from UV, and not just for the sake of vanity but also, more importantly for our health. As the years went by, however, it turns out many sunscreens are more dangerous than they are helpful. Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen Sensitive is made with physical sunscreen actives but, that does not guarantee it does not have any drawbacks. At the end of the day, you decide what product meets your personal specifications.

    Product Introduction

    Say “Hello” to eyes so bright they twinkle, with RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream, US $182 for 15 ml. This product is exclusively formulated with RéVive’s proprietary RES and Exclusive Restorative Eye Complex, specially designed to deliver the following beauty benefits to enhance the look and feel of skin around your eyes in the following ways:

    • Deep hydrates
    • Powers up skin cells to perform repair and renewal functions at faster rates
    • Facilitate better skin synthesis and force a turnover
    • Make fine lines and wrinkles appear less visible
    • Smoothen and soften skin around the delicate eye area
    • Lighten pigmented skin and help brighten eye skin complexion for a more awake, less fatigued look

    Révive was founded by Dr. Gregory Bays Brown in 1998 as an alternative to high risk surgical skin care treatments.

    Ingredient Lists

    ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream
    • Glycerin: A powerful emollient that instantly boosts your skin’s moisture content as it also improves the comfortable and convenient feeling of silkiness and smoothness that calms the dryness on your skin’s outer surface layer
    • Shea Butter: A powerful humectant, it draws in moisture to your skin and helps keep your skin moisturized for hours following product application
    • Glucosamine HCL: Restores your skin’s elasticity, causing your skin to firm up and appear plumper, visibly making the delicate skin around your eyes appear smoother and more youthful
    • Peptides: Enhance communication and coordination between and among your skin cells to make repairs and regeneration happen at a faster rate
    • Amino acids: Serve as the building blocks of your skin, supplies additional foundation for new skin to be formed and become better synthesized
    • Hydrogenated Lecithin: Aids the beneficial ingredients in this formula to deeply penetrate your skin so that the nutrients go all the way down to your skin cells where these are needed the most

    Directions

    Use RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream with your morning and evening skin care regimens, always following a thorough cleansing and toning. For best results, use with other Avène products for complementary product benefits for your skin.

    Advantages

    • Product is guaranteed safe for users who wear contact lenses
    • Provides multiple benefits that includes enhanced skin moisture and rate of renewal
    • Leaves delicate skin around your eyes looking more vibrant and more awake

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin that can cause long-term adverse effects to your overall health and well-being
    • Product contains PEGs, which are at high risk of becoming contaminated with carcinogens during the manufacturing process
    • Product is so much more expensive compared with most other eye creams
    • Product provides very basic eye cream ingredients but fails to fold in protective antioxidants in the formula

    Final Verdict

    RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream is undoubtedly much too expensive than most other high end creams. For a hefty price tag, you should expect a formulation that will give you a powerful, impactful combination of ingredients capable of giving you short-term and longer-term improvements on skin around your eyes. Unfortunately, this products’ benefits are limited to the short-term.

    • Product has been tested on 221 women for 21 days, yielding the following results:
    • 91 per cent said their eyes looked renewed
    • 81 per cent said skin around their lips felt smoother

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains BHT, a toxic chemical suspected of being an endocrine disruptor which can affect the normal functioning of your hormones and the mechanisms that these regulate and control
    • Product contains artificial colorants and butylene glycol, ingredients that can set off severe skin irritations
    • There is little information available on how the formula works to deliver on product claims

    Final Verdict

    Eau Thermale Avène Ysthéal Eye and Lip Contour Care can be taken as a two-in-one solution to skin aging problems that nobody can help but develop eventually around the delicate skin surrounding your eyes and lips. While this product can be lauded for finding a less irritating alternative to retinol, it does have irritating ingredients in the formula too. That means, you may have to decide which trade offs you are willing to sign up for in the name of beauty.

    Product Introduction

    When eye skin problems begin plague your skin and beset your quest for ageless beauty, Nuance Salma Hayek Age Affirm Firming Eye Balm, US $19.99 for 1.7 fl. oz., promises to turn back the clock to give you skin that’s always young, bright and firm.

    Nuance Salma Hayek is the namesake and beauty care company founded and managed by the Latina actress whose pretty face and sexy figure captured the world’s attention.

    Ingredient Lists

    Nuance Salma Hayek Age Affirm Firming Eye Balm
    • Rose Petal Complex: Consists of violet extract, lavender flower extract and rose extract, it helps restore the silky smooth texture and firmness of skin around your eyes, essentially fading wrinkles and fine lines
    • Peptides: Help enhance communication between skin cells, resulting to better coordinated repair and regeneration mechanisms that improve skin synthesis and lessen the period it takes to turnover new skin
    • Oat Kernel Extract: Calms skin irritation, allergies and other signs of inflammation, including de-puffing eye bags and brightening dark circles
    • Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, and Coconut Oil: Easily and deeply penetrates the skin to immediately restore moisture and keep your skin better hydrated for a longer period of time

    • Product is packed with powerful and nutrient-rich emollients and humectants that include Shea Butter and Coconut Oil
    • Product has not been tested on animals
    • Product is infused with ingredients that have anti-inflammatory properties

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains flower ingredients that are likely to cause severe skin irritation, most especially on delicate skin around your eye
    • Product contains menthol, likely to plump up your skin which may be a sign of swelling
    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin often used as product preservatives but, which unfortunately can cause brain and nervous system damage at toxic levels
    • Lacks ingredients that will bring lasting benefits, including anti-aging benefits, to your skin

    Final Verdict

    Nuance Salma Hayek Age Affirm Firming Eye Balm may be a good basic moisturizer though it may still be overpriced. However, if you are looking for a more anti-aging performing kind of cream, this product simply does not have the ingredients to make that happen.

    Product Introduction

    Restorsea Pro Line Blur Eye Cream, US $65 for 15 g, is a product committed to more specialized care for skin around your eyes, is made with Restoresea’s proprietary complex, Vibransea, primarily formulated with Salmon Roe derived from the pristine waters of Norway. This product aims to deliver the following benefits for your skin:

    • Boost moisture on skin around your eye area
    • Improve the presentation of wrinkles and fine lines, including crow’s feet
    • Exfoliate the top layer of your skin to make renewal happen and force a skin turnover

    Restoresea is a company that is driven by the still largely unexplored organisms under the sea that have been reported to be nutrient rich and likely hold the key to restoring ageless skin.

    Ingredient Lists

    Restorsea Pro Line Blur Eye Cream
    • Salmon Roe: Helps slough off the top layer of your skin so as to stimulate collagen production at higher levels, while also enhancing the hydrating effects of moisturizing ingredients in the formula
    • Vitamin C: Re-energizes your skin cells so that skin repairs, synthesis and regeneration can happen more efficiently at faster rates
    • Brown Algae: Enriched with antioxidants, emollients and antibacterial components that help restore your skin’s optimal health and vibrant complexion
    • Squalane: Helps replenish lost moisture in your skin as it also improves your skin’s capability to keep moisture locked for hours; with regular use, skin elasticity is enhanced
    • Shea Butter: Acts as a humectant, drawing moisture in so that your skin becomes dewier and more supple to the touch
    • Avena Sativa (Oat) Extract: Has anti-inflammatory benefits that calms and soothes irritated skin
    • Lactobacillus Ferment: Restores the balance of good micro flora and fauna on your skin, keeping skin free from infection and inflammation

    Directions

    Use Restorsea Pro Line Blur Eye Cream together with your morning and evening skin care routines. Start by applying a tiny amount of the product on your fingertips and rubbing between your fingers before dotting and spreading the product around your eyes.

    Advantages

    • Product claims are backed up by efficacy studies, methods and results are available by request
    • Products from the Restoresea PRO line are available only from licensed physicians, ensuring that proper adherence to treatment directions are followed by patients
    • Product provides multiple benefits that includes moisturization, strong antioxidant protection, mild exfoliation, and protection from cell damage causing free radicals

    Disadvantages

    • Contains fragrance ingredients that can be highly irritating to any skin type
    • There is little evidence establishing the potency of salmon roe in exfoliating, moisturizing and healing human skin
    • Manufacturer has no prior established reputation and track record in skincare

    Final Verdict

    Restorsea Pro Line Blur Eye Cream may be offering an innovative approach to address dull, aging skin around your eyes. While the painless exfoliating offer sounds inviting, a dearth of scientific evidence remains necessary in establishing product efficacy, most especially if you are being offered a novel proposal. There are more products with established, working science in every bottle, if you are more inclined to go down that direction.

    Product Introduction

    When you want to see a welcome miracle happen on the damaged skin around your eyes, you can rely on La Mer The Illuminating Eye Gel, US$150 for 0.5 oz. Made with a proprietary complex of energy trapped in its miracle broth, this product is formulated to deliver the following functions:

    • Relieve your skin from dryness
    • Correct uneven skin tone
    • Bring back your skin’s youthful glow

    The result of years of researching and experimenting led Dr. Max Huber to the formulation of Miracle Broth, energized with sound waves, it serves as the base ingredient for all products bearing the label of Crème de la Mer now owned by Estee Lauder.

    Ingredient Lists

    La Mer The Illuminating Eye Gel
  • Miracle Broth: The ingredient that La Mer claims as its secret stew that restores the youthfulness and vibrance of your skin, is made from a complex combination of fermented, hand-harvested sea kelp and other nutrients that drives your skin to experience moisture boost, regeneration, calmness, smoothening, and brightening
    • Illuminating Ferment: Brings back the glow in your skin
    • Algae: Helps keep your skin well-hydrated as it also protects your skin from cell-damaging free radicals

    • Product texture is lightweight and almost like a serum
    • Cream does not have any strong or irritating scent that will overpower your senses
    • Product contains light reflectors that instantly brightens your eye area as soon as the product gets into contact with your skin

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains butylene glycol, an ingredient that has been documented over the years to cause severe skin irritations on all skin types
    • Product contains polyethylene glycols (PEG), toxic in themselves but even pose higher risks for your overall health and well being for being highly vulnerable to contamination with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogen
    • Product contains phenoxyethanol as a preservative, highly toxic and dangerous to health of your brain and nervous system

    Final Verdict

    La Mer The Illuminating Eye Gel may hold the miracle broth but, you are the one who holds the control. While powerful claims are being made, Estee Lauder is quite slow in providing proof this product indeed works. You may be taking a high priced risk for this beauty bottle.

    • The descriptions of key ingredients in the product’s website don’t state how they decrease the appearance of cellulite or provide links to studies that could corroborate claims made by the manufacturer.
    • Most ingredients used in the cream are found in competing cellulite creams that have yielded uneven results.
    • Clarins’ products purchased from the manufacturer’s website can only be returned if unopened and unused. Gifts that may have been included with purchase must also be returned.

    Conclusion

    Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control can help soothe skin affected by cellulite. The escin included in its formula can help restore the health of blood vessels and even decrease puffiness that causes skin to sag. This also includes caffeine with chlorogenic acid that may cause allergic reactions. Customers can purchase the cream at various locations. However, the purchases from Clarins’ official website can only be returned if they are unopened. This policy could cause potential customers to reconsider buying this cream because comparable brands often have more generous policies.

People must test the cream on a portion of their skin to ensure the product will deliver desire results or ensure no adverse reactions. A return policy or money-back guarantee is also not mentioned, and this may dissuade prospective customers from buying the product.

    Final Verdict

    Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Eye Treatment contains the very basic essentials of an eye cream which, in fact, does not make its formula any more different than what you probably already have in your moisturizer. When you spend another US $38 for beautiful skin, make it count by getting only the products that your skin really needs.

The product is sold and manufactured by the San Francisco-based biotechnology company, Algenist. The cream costs an average of $98 per container, and this may prevent budget-conscious potential clients from trying the cream.

    Before summer sucks the best out of your skin and practically spoil the rest of your beach holiday, you better learn and commit to practice these 7 skin care tips that will help your skin get by the hot sun, the scorching heat, and the potentially temperamental climate in the coming weeks:

    Tip No. 1: Never Leave the Shade Without Sunscreen

    Never Leave the Shade Without Sunscreen

    To be exact, you need to apply your sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you brave the bright, skin damaging sun. Here’s another sunscreen wisdom for you to keep in mind: “Sun protection doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive — it needs to be consistent.” That was according to melanoma survivor, Hillary Fogelson. Remember, too, that there is no sunscreen that can keep you 100 percent shielded from UV.

    Tip No. 2: Add a Cold Cream to Your To-Go Beauty Stash

    Add a Cold Cream to Your To-Go Beauty Stash

    It’s best that you make sure you can relieve sunburn whenever wherever you get one. In fact, you should use a cold cream every time you come into the shade after prolonged exposure to sunlight. That way, you can relax your skin.

    Tip No. 3: Stay Cool

    Stay Cool

    Take cold showers in midday, after sweating profusely or, as soon as you get out of the sand and water. Other than giving your skin a refreshing feeling, taking cold showers also allows your body to cool down, making heat stroke unlikely and preventing your system from overheating. Besides, showering after a dip also helps you avoid getting rashes caused by parasites in the water. Just take note that too much showering strips off too much of your skin’s natural oils too. So, shower only when you need to.

    Tip No. 4: Stay Hydrated

    Stay Hydrated

    Cool off your body from within as well. You cannot possibly have a well-moisturized skin when you have a dehydrated body. Take plenty of water and fresh fruit juice, most especially when you are spending the day out on the beach where the intense heat feels like it is out to sip the fluids right out of you.

    Tip No. 5: Tone and Moisturize

    Tone and Moisturize

    Use a non-drying, alcohol-free toner that will tighten your skin to keep moisture locked and fight surface water loss. Put on layers of moisturizers that contain antioxidants to help shield your skin from UV and free radical damage. Keeping your routine nice and tight by using multifunctional products like Solvaderm’s Dermaxsol, which combines moisturizer and sunscreen in one will be ideal for daytime use

    Tip No. 6:Don’t Stop Hydrating

    Don’t Stop Hydrating

    Keep your bottle of water, and bring a long a hydrating mist to keep your skin from drying out. Staying indoors where the temp is cooler and the air is more humid will also help you stay hydrated.

    Tip No. 7: Exfoliate

    Exfoliate

    The dry weather makes dry, flaky skin a common occurrence. Slough these off regularly to allow your moisturizing products to hydrate and heal your skin.

    Conclusion

    Too much of anything is bad for you. That includes summer. So, when you want to really relish summer, do yourself good by knowing your limits.

    Final Verdict

    Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm will be an outstanding addition to your anti-aging arsenal if only more convincing evidence were provided about the science behind this product’s key ingredients, all derived from algae. Then, the price tag will also be painful on your beauty budget.

    With regard to our editorial, the following sections detail our content policies and procedures.

    It is our goal and our mission to bring you news and updates delivered as accurately as possible. We want you to trust us and believe in our objectivity and accuracy. The content on our site is practical as well as relevant.

    Our wide variety of topics cover just about your every bits and pieces of health information you need. And because we aim to serve you, we filter certain types of information. We make sure that these are applicable to your personal health. We also highly rely on you, our reader, to choose the information that is most appropriate. As accurate as we try to be, always trust the opinion of your doctor above everything else. We’re simply here to supplement the facts they give.

    Hence, always seek professional advice regarding your concerns and questions about the topics you’ve read.

    So, without further ado, here’s the Editorial Selection Criteria for Original Content

    TBI creates original content based upon the following criteria:

    • Relevance – These include issues that could affect how you manage your own health and those around you. Topics cover a variety of health news, drug and product launches, recalls, and alerts, health advisories, and expert commentary.
    • Clinical Significance – Included here are the latest medical findings published in a variety of well-known medical sites.
    • Trends – These cover seasonal interests including summer safety, allergy seasons, and colds and flu. We also dabble in public health awareness such as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Healthy Heart Month.

    Our Content Is Unique

    Our content is reliable. While the online world is crammed with outdated and inaccurate information, we at TBI
    stand head and shoulders above the rest.

    The news and stories we feature are based on editors’ selections. Our news articles are more than just a mere summary. The articles created contain interviews with the medical researchers and with objective experts.

  • Editorial Integrity – We have a journalistic responsibility of providing you with news, features, reference, and other information that’s distinctly different from each other.
  • Editorial Independence – We try to be fair, objective, and accurate reporting. Again, this is to reiterate our journalistic responsibility to the rest of the world.
  • Editorial Policy for TBI Editorial Staff

    TBI News is an independent media service. Our goal is to provide news, information, and educational materials to all our readers, professional or not. The content we create is free from influence by sponsors, partners, or other sources.

    Any one part of our editorial staff must fully disclose any financial or other interests that he or she may have in any drug, biotech, medical device, or other company perceived to have a strong foothold in the healthcare industry. The immediate supervisor was informed at the time of hiring. The supervisor then determines whether the interest presents a conflict and if there’s something that needs to be done to eliminate it.

    Our editorial staff is kept separated and distinct from staff dedicated to sponsors or partners. Each one is charged with the responsibility of providing objective, accurate, and well-balanced descriptions of latest events and issues. Our reporters diligently seek out stories or qualified experts for the commentary. They also seek objective commentary that comes from a qualified spokesperson. This is how we maintain balance. This is also how we ensure ethical behavior at the highest professional standards.

    News & Original Article Process

    During each working day, our journalists plan the daily news budget. These must contain the latest information from the most important medical journals, announcements from federal health agencies, and analyses on the latest health trends. Our experienced health reporters talk or meet with prominent medical leaders on a regular basis to get in-depth analyses, updates, and profiles that give our health news and content a perspective that’s unique to only us. Then, the original articles are carefully reviewed by our qualified staff editors.

    Product Introduction

    Ven Effect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer, US $185 for 1.7 fl. oz., offers an ultra hydrating blend of deep moisturizing ingredients that work together to help restore your skin’s health and overall vitality. More specifically, this moisturizer commits to deliver the following beauty benefits for your skin:

    • Flood your skin with comforting skin moisture and round-the-clock conditioning.
    • Improve the antioxidant protection of your skin for it to better resist damage down to the cellular level.
    • Improve skin cell coordination to make renewal and regeneration happen at relatively shorter cycles.
    • Enhance skin firmness and restore elasticity.
    • Enhance your skin’s hyaluronic acid content.

    VENeffect is a beauty and skin care company that has invested its R&D efforts into researching the skin enhancing effect of estrogen, particularly in restoring skin health but also in holding back signs of aging skin.

    Ingredient Lists

    Veneffect Anti-aging Moisturizer
    • Peptides: Amino acids that help facilitate better coordination between skin cells so that repair, rejuvenation and regeneration mechanisms may become activated to curb the time it takes to produce more collagen and other skin precursors necessary to renew and turnover skin.
    • Resveratrol: Contains loads of antioxidants that support skin recovery in two distinct ways, that is, to provide powerful antioxidant protection to shield skin cells from the damaging effects of free radicals and, to some extent, even UV, while simultaneously pumping more energy into your skin cells to increase metabolism and activity.
    • Hyaluronic Acid: Attracts moisture from the surroundings and times moisture release which keeps your skin comfortably hydrated and supple enough to bounce back from folding over longer periods of time.
    • Shea Butter: A powerful emollient that conditions your skin and leaves it at a better hydrated condition with regular product application.
    • Phytoestrogens: Help stimulate higher levels of collagen production.

    Directions

    Use Ven Effect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer as part of your morning and evening skin care routines. For best results, use with the VENeffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum.

    Advantages

    • Product has been guaranteed by the manufacturer to be hypoallergenic and won’t clog pores.
    • Product does not contain irritating fragrances and gluten, and does not use parabens as product preservatives.
    • Causes your skin complexion to become lighter and brighter

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains polyethylene glycols (PEG), toxic ingredients that can easily make this product carcinogenic when it combines with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogen, to which PEGs are strongly attracted to.
    • Product contains phenoxyethanol used as a preservative but, as a neurotoxin, can become accumulated at toxic levels which then can affect the normal and healthy functioning of your brain and nerve system.
    • Product contains highly irritating butylene glycol which makes this product rather than recommended for use by people with sensitive and problematic skin.

    Final Verdict

    Ven Effect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer is loaded with moisturizing ingredients supported by powerful antioxidants and peptides, and could very well relieve dry skin problems with ease. Unfortunately, the formula lacks ceramides and other barrier-forming ingredients to restore your skin’s protective function and keep all the good moisture present in this product locked in.

    More specifically this duo formula commits to bring you the following anti-aging benefits for your skin:

    • Protect and correct expression lines, age and gravity lines.
    • Two formulations made to complement each other: one for day, another for night.
    • Ageless beauty visible in just 14 days and 14 nights of c.

    This product was formulated by La Prairie, a Swiss beauty and anti-aging brand founded in 1978 which was first recognized for its Cellular Eye Cream, and, since then, has been referred to as one of the leaders and innovators of anti-aging skin care technology.

    Ingredient Lists

    La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo

    Day Cream

    • Sunscreen Actives : Avobenzone (2.7%), Homosalate (9.0%), Octisalate (4.5%) and Octocrylene (9.0%).
    • Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-52 : Inhibits the contraction of your facial muscles, causing your skin to remain long, stretched and firm.
    • Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-18 : Limits your muscles reflexes that tells it to contract, that makes lesser fine lines and wrinkles to form and show up on the surface of your skin.
    • Hyaluronic Acid : Attracts water molecules into your skin, improves the water retention capabilities of your skin matrix, and keeps your skin moisturized for longer periods of time.

    Night Cream

    Advantages

    • Day cream is infused with sunscreen that has broad spectrum protection, graded SPF30, and Infrared A (IRA) protection factor.
    • Product rightfully distinguishes the varying needs of your skin during the day and at night, correctly formulating two different products served as one.
    • Formulas are properly packaged, preventing active ingredients from degrading due to sun, heat, light and air exposure so your skin gets the same ‘oomph’ every time you squeeze a drop.

    Disadvantages

    • Manufacturer does not present any evidence of product efficacy and potency.
    • Day cream and night cream are still formulated with potentially irritating ingredients that can cause permanent damages to your skin in the long run, including fragrances, drying alcohols, menthol, and synthetic dyes.
    • Both formulas use phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin, as preservative.
    • Extremely expensive product compared to its not so differently formulated competitors.

    Final Verdict

    La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo seems like it can deliver on its promise of “One Lineless Future”. Unfortunately, the same old ingredients that have already been busted to do more harm than good for your skin are still there.

    Product Introduction

    For those times when there is no way you can avoid getting stressed or, when you are getting too little rest and sleep, give your skin more of what it needs by nourishing it with Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin Reviver No.91, US $45 for 14 ml.

    More specifically, this product commits to deliver for you the following skin health and beauty benefits:

    • Restores the energy of your skin cells to restore healthy metabolism and other rejuvenating and regenerating skin functions.
    • Replenish lost nutrients from your skin to restore your skin’s overall health.
    • Provides your skin with a significant antioxidant boost that revitalizes your skin and protects it from fatigue and further damage.
    • Brightens your complexion for a more awake, more youthful appearance.

    This product has been formulated by Bobbi Brown, a brand that started off as a cosmetics company with products first conceptualized by the celebrity makeup artist with the same name.

    Ingredient Lists

    Bobbi Brown Skin Reviver No.91
    • Chlorella Extract : Has anti-inflammatory properties that relieves skin of irritation and multiple signs of skin aging, while also improving collagen production to restore skin health, including elasticity.
    • Energen Complex : A marketing term possibly describing this product’s the energy boosting components of the formula, reviving healthy skin cell functioning and speeding up repairs and regeneration activities.
    • Power Greens Ferment : “Extracted from antioxidant-rich greens, ” according to the company website, this must be made from a botanical complex consisting of plants with the highest antioxidant contents.

    Directions

    Use Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin Reviver No.91 after cleansing and toning, ideally under your serums and moisturizers to get the product as close as possible to your skin. For best results, use with Bobbi Brown Skin Reviver.

    Advantages

    • Product currently comes with 4 free mini product testers if you order it from the Bobbi Brown Cosmetics website.

    • 76 per cent claimed that they saw more radiant skin.
    • 75 per cent of users said that their skin felt refreshed and full of vitality.
    • 73 per cent said their skin was relieved from dullness.

    Disadvantages

    • Manufacturer fails to openly disclose this product’s full ingredients list, not even describing in detail the marketing terms it has come up with to describe what this product is made of, which seriously limits information about what this product can do, why it is beneficial for your skin, and if it is safe.

    Final Verdict

    Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin Reviver No.91 could have been the next best pick-me-up product that you can add to your routine for those exceptional days when you seriously lack sleep and your skin feels like it is hanging by a thread. Sadly, this product is being sold like some magic potion with the manufacturer telling you to simply believe its claims. When you are a smarter consumer, however, that just don’t count.

    Product Introduction

    Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant, US $58 for 2.0 oz., gives your skin a health boost by ridding it of pollutants that stop your skin from radiating a healthy complexion.

    More specifically, this product promises to deliver the following beauty benefits:

    • Gently rid your skin of impurities on a regular basis
    • Give your skin an antioxidant boost and help guarantee premium skin protection that stays effective down to the cellular level

    This product has been formulated by Dermalogica, a brand conceptualized by a UK esthetician back in 1983, which, today, manufactures products that are informed by its founders’ years of experience running the International Dermal Institute.

    Ingredient Lists

    Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant
    • Alpha hydroxy acids: Gently sloughs off your skin’s top layer with every wash to regularly rid of excess oils, pollution, and product residues that prevent your skin from giving off a naturally glowing complexion as it also stimulates faster rates and higher volumes of collagen production.
    • Activated Binchotan Charcoal: Absorbs environmental toxins stuck in your skin to purify your skin and rid it of harmful pollutants that can cause permanent damage to your skin.
    • Niacinamide: Provides powerful antioxidant protection while also improving cell nourishment and drainage of toxins by improving microcirculation; supports skin synthesis and restoring skin resilience from damage.

    Directions

    Use Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant once or twice daily following a cleanse. Take about a teaspoonful of the black powder and lather on wet skin to form bubbles which are activated when rinsed and ready to lift and resurface pollutants stuck in your skin.

    Advantages

    • Product contains several anti-inflammatory ingredients that soothe and calm skin irritations
    • Product provides a solid list of antioxidants which, combined, are able to provide potent protection against UV and free radical induced damages to the surface, matrix and cells of your skin
    • Instantly makes the skin radiate with a healthy glow

    • Product contains menthol ingredients which may cause some people to become reactive.
    • Manufactured failed to provide studies to show formula efficacy and product potency which is particularly important with unique products such as this is.

    Final Verdict

    Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant’s rich antioxidant content and grime resurfacing power can give your skin a much-needed boost most especially on days when you feel stressed and fatigued. Other than positive consumer testimonials, however, there is no evidence that this formula actually works as claimed.

    • Product contains parabens, which can be hormone-disrupting, and although sourced from 100 per cent blueberries, there is no guarantee that these are safer than its synthetic counterparts, that’s because the primary mechanism that makes parabens risky when applied topically is that it is absorbed undigested, although when eaten (as it is present in some foods), the risk is negligible because it is broken down before it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
    • Contains lavender which has high potential to irritate the skin because of its aromatic fragrance components.
    • Product may not be as easy to access as other wrinkle creams.

    Final Verdict

    There’s no harm adding a Cellfood Skin Care Oxygen Gel most especially as it comes at a bargain price. However, its basic formulation may possibly just add redundancy to your beauty regimen which will be unnecessary if you are already following a detailed routine.

    Ingredient Lists

    Truskin Vitamin C

    • Vitamin E: Nourishes your skin and helps rebuild your skin’s protective barrier as it deeply nourishes your skin while also simultaneously providing antioxidant protection to shield your skin from damage and aging.
    • Hyaluronic Acid: A powerful humectant that attracts moisture to your skin and keeps it hydrated over long periods of time.
    • Methylsulfonylmethane: Provides antioxidant protection with inhibiting action of ROS-originating free radicals; also promotes tougher skin synthesis that makes your skin more resilient to breakage, damage and aging.

    Directions

    Advantages

    • Product includes two of the most potent antioxidants that you can derive from a topical skin care product, although the formula fails to incorporate Niacinamide.
    • Manufacturer claims that the product has been demonstrated to reduce sun burned cells by as much as 96 percent.
    • Product formula mostly consists of natural, botanically derived ingredients that do not pose the same risks as synthetically designed ingredients.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin that can compromise the health of your central nervous system with long term exposure.
    • Product contains menthol and witch hazel which can be severely irritating for people with sensitive and problematic skin conditions.
    • Acidic content may make the formulation not suitable for application on skin around the eyes, as many consumers have pointed out it can be irritating around those parts

    Final Verdict

    TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum, if only for its sheer high Vitamin C concentration, can seriously boost your skin health and improve your beauty arsenal. However, whether or not this product suits you and your routine perfectly depend a lot on other factors too, that include how your skin reacts to this product’s formula, how it fits into your routine, and if it is required by your skin.

    Do you feel like your hair color has been stuck in a rut for the past months? This summer, perhaps it is time to emerge like a phoenix from your long hibernation. There are endless options out there, but you need to think twice before making a big change – well, you don’t want to walk around with a bad color choice! Here are some genius ideas you should consider for your new summer hairstyle.

    1. Millennial Pink

    Millennial Pink

    Also one of the top hair colors today, this shade has taken over literally everything (including furniture and automobiles). The petal pink is a little tricky to pull off so you really need an experienced hair professional for this one. Also, remember that “the look” isn’t for everyone so you may need a few hours fiddling with your picture in Photoshop. If it doesn’t look stunning on you, don’t worry because there are many other hues you can choose from.

    2. Tie-Dye

    Tie-Dye

    Okay, so this is a little bit crazier than the previous choice and it is definitely only for free spirits who love a vivacious look. It is for you if you’re the type of girl who wants everything at the same time – ash blonde as base and rainbow highlights that include neon hues and popular pastels of your choice. YOU GO GIRL!

    3. Iridescent Unicorn

    Iridescent Unicorn

    Everyone is still recovering from the Starbucks unicorn drink nightmare, and although the coffee chain is facing a ridiculous lawsuit, you don’t have to worry about going to court if you choose this color. It is a gorgeous blend of iridescent purple and gray that will give you a beautiful (and magical) appeal. Who knows? This might be the beginning of your happily ever after.

    4. Hidden Highlights

    Hidden Highlights

    This is a super subtle look that Kerry Washington pulls off impeccably. Your colorist will be challenged, but it is not really that complicated.

    5. Blonde-Gray

    Blonde-Gray

    This is a hybrid hair color that is hard to pull off; it’s simply out of this world. Grounded by nearly-black roots, this is a modern look that can give you a god-like aura. However, you need long, gorgeous hair for this one so it’s not really for everyone.

    6. Ash Brown

    Ash Brown

    If you just want to take a dip at the gray craze, this is the color you should try first. It’s perfect for cool skin tones that have pink undertones. There are bits of blue and gray that give this hue a notable ashen, grayish base.

    7. Subtle Two-Tone

    Subtle Two-Tone

    You can’t easily spot this hair trend because of its subtleness. Think of it as an ombre antithesis – dark roots that transition smoothly to ends that are just a little lighter. It is so delicate that not all hair stylists can pull of the dark and light color blending.

    8. Dimensional Mahogany

    Dimensional Mahogany

    The deep rich brunette shade is surely one of the top hair colors for summer 2017. Think Hailee Steinfeld and you will understand its simple appeal. No highlights are needed as this hue naturally has dimension and shine.

    9. Blorange

    Blorange

    You have probably never heard of this interesting hue, but it is the color mix to watch out for in 2017. Well, this can possibly be the biggest thing (or flop) – we’re still not sure although many are now wearing it. This is a mix of blonde and ginger that can make even the dullest hairstyles pop.

    Final Verdict

    Vichy Idéalia Eyes offers ingredients that can deliver real benefits for your skin. However, the damaging ingredients in the formula can easily negate any product advantage that you can derive.

    Product Introduction

    L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil, US $105 for 1 fl. oz., is a differently textured and formulated product that, like most anti-aging creams, bids to restore your youthful look by restoring your skin’s overall health.

    More specifically, this product is committed to enhance your skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation properties by delivering the following benefits:

    • Enhance your skin’s moisture levels
    • Improve the strength and vitality of your skin matrix to promote better skin elasticity
    • Help your skin to cope with much-needed repairs to restore skin health and vitality
    • Brighten your skin to awaken your complexion and make you look younger

    L’Occitane en Provence, a company committed to preserve traditional ways of growing product ingredients and the way of life in Provence, France is behind this product.

    Ingredient Lists

    L'Occitane Divine Youth Oil
    • Immortelle Essential Oil from Corsica: Has natural anti-inflammatory properties and gives your skin with an antioxidant boost.
    • Borago Officianalis Seed Oil: Help skin fight and recover from damage that causes it to age.
    • Evening Primrose Oil: Promotes firmer, more elastic skin.

    Directions

    For its deep nourishing properties and restorative functions, L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil is ideal for use in your nighttime regimen to complement and enhance your skin’s natural healing and regeneration capabilities which operate at its best while you sleep. Always apply only after skin cleansing and toning, as close to your skin as possible, and under your thicker serums and creams.

    Advantages

    • Product contains absolutely 100 percent natural oils only, demonstrated to give skin a significant moisture boost, and enhance your skin’s youthful appearance.
    • Formula is made with ingredients that have strong anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve skin from fatigue and damages that make it age and look older.
    • Manufacturer shared the following results gathered from a survey of 32 women who completed 4 weeks of product application:
    • 85 percent said that their skin looked younger and more radiant.
    • 84 percent said that their skin felt smoother and silkier all day.
    • 75 percent said that their pores were tighter and did not show through as much.
    • 63 percent said that their wrinkles and fine lines appeared smoother, faded and less noticeable.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains fragrance ingredients which are well-known to cause severe skin irritation on any skin type, which makes this product specially not recommended for use on sensitive and problematic skin.
    • Formula contains a very limited list of ingredients which makes it hard to tell how this product can deliver on its commitments.
    • Product is relatively more expensive than most other anti-wrinkle creams

    Final Verdict

    L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil can be a remarkable addition to your nighttime skincare regimen for the deep moisturizing properties of an excellent combination of plant oils. However, at such a steep price tag and a limited lineup of potential benefits on the other hand, US $105 may be too much of a price to pay, most especially when you will possibly need to layer this with more products that can deliver longer-lasting anti-aging benefits.

    Product Introduction

    Elemis Pro-Intense Lift Effect Night Cream, US $155 for 1.7 fl. oz., has been re-branded as “Pro-Definition Night Cream”.

    It has been specially formulated to deliver anti-aging benefits for your skin, and more specifically committed to bringing about the following results:

    • Strengthen your skin’s structure to promote improved elasticity and firmness.
    • Protect skin against elements and conditions that break down proteins that promote the vitality of collagen and elastin fibers in your skin.
    • Improve skin density and redefine your facial contours to bring back your skin’s youthful appearance.

    Ingredient Lists

    Elemis Night Cream
    • Gardenia Stem Cells: Promotes a stronger skin structure that is more resilient to damage and aging; with long-term application, it also promotes faster skin cell regeneration that keeps the surface healthy and youthful.
    • Arjuna: Has a strengthening effect on your skin’s extra cellular matrix which leads to the improvement in appearance of droopy and saggy skin.
    • Lupin: Provides a strengthening effect to the skin matrix which also improves support to collagen and elastin fibers, making skin tighter with a firmer and pulled up appearance.
    • Cape Jasmine Stem Cells: Improves skin tone and elasticity by enhancing skin cell regeneration and collagen production.

    Directions

    Use Elemis Pro-Intense Lift Effect Night Cream after cleansing and toning in the evening. When layering with other creams and serums, always work sequentially, starting with the lightweight formulas first and ending with the richest and thickest product in your routine.

    • 62 percent said the product made their skin look less saggy.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin that can accumulate in your body and which, at toxic levels, can cause adverse health effects to your brain and nervous system.
    • Product contains fragrances, one of the top products well-known to cause severe skin irritations to any skin type, that is, including non-sensitive ones.
    • Contains a slim category of ingredients with beneficial effects to the skin which severely limits the anti-aging functions of this formula.
    • Product is exoensive

    Final Verdict

    Elemis Pro-Intense Lift Effect Night Cream looks like it is made with the most current, most revolutionary ingredients with clean and green origins. Although this product will bring benefits to your skin, it may be limited to moisturizing effects. As for the long-lasting, anti-aging effects, however, it is doubtful how its formula can make youthful lookind skin that lasts happen. When you shed US $155, you simply want more out of every jar.

    Product Introduction

    Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Day Cream, US $54 for 1.7 fl. oz., is committed to renew and rejuvenate your skin. It is made with skin health enhancing ingredients that improve your skin’s elasticity and anti-aging protection.

    This brand, now owned by L’Oreal, was born in the streets of New York at the turn of the 20th century, and its products has since been formulated and sold apothecary style.

    Ingredient Lists

    Kiehl’s Wrinkle Cream
    • Copper PCA (Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid): One of the more modern humectant ingredients now incorporated in anti-aging products for its ability to penetrate perfectly intact skin, absorb moisture from the surroundings, and, in the process, enhance collagen production and the protective functions of antioxidants.
    • Calcium PCA: Enhances repair and regeneration mechanisms down to the cellular level, aids in rebuilding and strengthening your skin’s lipid barrier to enhance protection from infection, damage and aging, and also improves antioxidant protection that promotes skin cell health.
    • Adenosine: Revitalizes your skin cells by providing a new source of energy which, in turn, helps drive up production of collagen and elastin fibers at much higher volumes.
    • Arginine PCA: A dual amino acid combination that has been shown to prevent glycation, which results to aging skin, while simultaneously reversing the process to correct multiple signs of skin aging.

    Directions

    Use Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Day Cream as part of your morning and evening skin care routine. Take a dime-sized amount, dot, and spread evenly on your face, neck and chest using a massaging motion to better incorporate product into your skin.

    Advantages

    • Product moisturizes without the oily, sticky feeling and without leaving the surface of your skin greasy.
    • Product does not contain any irritating fragrance.
    • Contains PCA grade level ingredients that have been claimed to enhance skin moisture and the anti-aging effects of this formula by enhancing collagen production and by refortifying your skin’s protective barrier.
    • Manufacturer implemented clinical study shows 32 per cent improvement in skin elasticity, although details have not been shared.

    Disadvantages

    • Product is made with two primary ingredients, calcium and copper, which has a number of studies showing skin benefits, although there is hardly any evidence that a PCA grade will deliver these benefits when applied topically.
    • Product contains polyethylene glycols (PEG), toxic chemicals that carries a high risk for contamination of 1,4 dioxane, a well-known carcinogen.
    • Product contains petrolatum, an ingredient well-known to clog pores, and therefore compromises its formula’s capability to deliver its skin tightening and smoothening effects, and which also makes this product not recommended for use by people with acne-prone and problematic skin.
    • Product contains highly irritating butylene glycol and phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin.

    Final Verdict

    Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Day Cream may seem like the kind of product you want to have in your anti-aging regimen for appearing scientifically advanced. However, without a robust body of literature supporting its claims, it could be just another product trying to carve out its own portion of the trillion dollar worth beauty and personal care market.

    • Product contains natural plant oils that give your lips a major moisture boost that lasts several hours following product application.
    • Product does bot contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petrochemical by-products.
    • Product delivers the combined benefits of a moisture boost and antioxidant boost.
    • Product is formulated only using food grade ingredients guaranteed to be safe for use on your skin

    Disadvantages

    • Tingling sensation resulting from product contact with your skin may be a sign of irritation, which is, in fact, what makes your lips appear fuller and swollen.
    • The irritating effect of peppermint oil and pepper extract in the formula may cause longer-term, irreversible damages to your lips and the skin matrix underneath with regular and prolonged product use that can lead to chronic dryness and drive down collagen production.
    • Formula is made mostly of skin moisturizing ingredients, offering little to no prospect for any longer-term beneficial product effect.
    • Product is formulated only in a single vibrant shade of red which not many people may prefer on their lips.

    Final Verdict

    Bite Beauty Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil is yet another lip plumping product that deliberately swells up your lips by causing it to become inflamed, irritated and swollen. Instant effects may be good enough but, you should be wary of longer term effects as well.

    • Product only brings temporary benefits that promote your lip health and appearance.

    Final Verdict

    Lancer Volume Enhancing Lip Serum may have a lip plumping effect although, that may be mostly due to highly irritating ingredients infused in the product formulation. Anyhow, even the moisture boost it offers is temporary. Positive results may last for several hours. However, if you want longer-lasting results, you may have to expand your horizons because this product simply won’t last.

    Product Introduction

    Sometimes, waiting around for positive effects to happen to your lips is far more beneficial than getting results on-the-spot. When you have the luxury of time to wait for prettier developments to happen to your lips, there’s Fillerina Lip Volume Grade 2, US $109 for 5 ml, a product that promises to deliver the following benefits to improve the appearance of your thin lips:

    • Smoothens out wrinkles and fine lines appearing around your lips.
    • Allows for positive results to last from 3 up to 4 months.

    Fillerina, founded in 2012, is a subsidiary of Swiss company, Labo Cosprophar, and has been recognized for formulating the first ever cosmetic filler that can be safely used and administered at home

    Ingredient Lists

    Fillerina
    • Matrifull: A proprietary complex that boosts the moisture content of your skin matrix while the product also fills in cracks and creases on your skin as active ingredients boost collagen production over time, with regular product use.
    • Glycerin: A powerful emollient that helps restore healthy skin moisture levels.

    • Product is guaranteed by manufacturer to be alcohol-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free
    • Product builds up lip enhancing effects of the product, where beneficial results can last between 3 to 4 months

    Disadvantages

    • Product is not formulated to give your lips an instant plumpness and firmness just minutes following application; it takes several days, 14 days on the average, for product to show noticeable improvements to your thin lips
    • Product contains butylene glycol, a highly irritating ingredient
    • Product is expensive with each package lasting only 14 days of day and night use

    Final Verdict

    Fillerina Lip Volume Grade 2 offers a new approach to lip plumping. It does not give instant plumping effect but, gives results that lasts for several months after results become noticeable. The steep price tag, however, may be an impediment but, not to worry, there are other alternatives.

    • All three sizes can be combined depending on your preferences and given the specific look for your lips that you are going for

    Each Multipack also comes with a free tinted lip gloss. Fullips was founded by Linda Gomez who confessed she had issues with her thinning lips as she became older.

    Ingredient Lists

    • There is high likelihood of irritation caused by sucking on the containers if the person using the multipack has previously contracted allergies from skin contact with plastic or dyes, and when too much lip sucking is done.
    • Manufacturer fails to present any study demonstrating product safety and efficacy.

    Final Verdict

    Fullips All Three Multipack may have just resolved your thin lips issues while eliminating the need for you to undergo high risk surgery or painful lip injections. However, these sucking containers are only capable of giving you fuller lips at a severely limited time. In case you want something more potent, you may have to seek alternative solutions.

    Final Verdict

    Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper is formulated with the ingredients that are guaranteed to give your lips the youthful plump that you seek. However, these primary ingredients may not be exactly doing your health and beauty the justice they deserve. Several ingredients cause irritating reactions which could be the only thing that’s really making your pout look fuller.

    Product Introduction

    InstaNatural Cellulite Cream, US $17 for 120 ml, with a potent lineup of ingredients, is committed to deliver for you the following benefits targeted at improving how your cellulites appear

    Improve skin firmness, tightness and elasticity

    Excrete cellulites from your system by improving cellular metabolism and the mechanisms that breakdown unwanted fats

    Flood your skin with antioxidants that shield your skin from damage so as not to thin out the surface layer of your skin

    There is no available information about this product’s manufacturer.

    Ingredient Lists

    InstaNatural Cellulite Cream
    • Retinol: Stimulates the production of collagen at higher volumes, in turn, making your skin appear firmer as repairs pack in your skin fibers tighter so that your cellulites do not appear so evident on the surface of your skin.
    • Caffeine: Causes veins underneath affected areas to open wide, causing a flood of fluids to come rushing in to fill the gap which, in turn, props up your skin, making the dimples on your cellulites less visible.
    • Carnitine: Improves cellular metabolism, allowing fats, fluids and toxins to be drained and flushed from your system, potentially shrinking the components that make your cellulites appear prominently.
    • REGU SLIM: A proprietary ingredient made from 3.0% Paullinia Cupana (Guarana) Seed Extract, dilates your blood vessels, improving circulation and drainage in the process.
    • Jojoba Oil: Deeply hydrates and moisturizes your skin to firm it up and make it more supple and more elastic.
    • Vitamin E and Other Antioxidants: Nourish your skin while simultaneously protecting your skin from damage that can weaken the thick protective barrier.

    Directions

    Due to its retinol content, which breaks down when exposed to heat and sunlight, it is highly recommended that InstaNatural Cellulite Cream only be applied on clean, clear and dry skin at night.

    Advantages

    • Product is backed by a lifetime satisfaction money back guarantee by the manufacturer, which is a good deal when you seriously want to try out what this product can do to improve your cellulites.
    • Product is formulated with a potent complex of ingredients that are well-known to smoothen out cellulites, make these less noticeable, rid your system from fluids, fats and toxins that cause them, while simultaneously protecting you from forming more orange peels.
    • Formula protects, tightens, firms up and enhances your skin’s moisture levels

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains fragrance ingredients which any type of skin can find highly irritating but, most especially not recommended to be in contact with skin of people who have sensitive and problematic skin.
    • Product contains toxic PEGs, chemicals that have high affinity for combining with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogen during product manufacturing process.
    • Product contains retinol, which although beneficial, is known to make your skin more photosensitive, which means it gets easily damaged when exposed to UV.
    • Manufacturer failed to present study to serve as evidence of product and formulation potency

    Final Verdict

    InstaNatural Cellulite Cream delivers same mechanisms that more expensive brands are offering to do at just a third of the average price. Without the studies to backup product claims, however, it is hard to trust how this product can make longer lasting results happen.

    Product Introduction

    Nivea Skin Firming and Toning Gel-Cream, US $10 for 189 g, has been formulated to help you banish the unsightly appearance of new and stubborn cellulites which, we no know, are caused by trapped fat cells that push against your skin as they become bigger, and the skin fibers that trap them which pull the surface of your skin down.

    With key ingredients that include Coenzyme Q10, lotus extracts, and L-Carnitine, this product is designed to help you flush out the toxins that are causing your cellulites to budge.

    This product has been formulated and is manufactured by Nivea, one of the first companies to earn a reputation for high quality products sold for drugstore tag prices.

    Ingredient Lists

    Nivea Anti Cellulite Cream
    • Coenzyme Q10: Gives skin in affected area a significant moisture boost as this ingredient acts like a moisture magnet, drawing in more moisture into your skin which causes it to plump then, releases it back to the surface in a sequenced manner that keeps your skin feeling comfortably well hydrated for longer.
    • Natural Lotus Extract: Promotes and improves your skin’s resiliency to damage, this ingredient reinforces your skin’s outer barrier, protects your skin from unnecessary moisture loss, and enhances your skin’s vitality as it tightens your skin fibers.
    • L-Carnitine: Enhances cellular metabolism so that toxins, unwanted fats and excess fluids may be flushed out from your body and not to be stored as unsightly cellulites.

    Directions

    Nivea Skin Firming and Toning Gel-Cream must be applied on clean, clear and dry skin affected by cellulites on the thighs, stomach, buttocks, underarms or, elsewhere on your body where skin shows up as dimpled. Apply generous amounts of the product and safely increase frequency of application throughout the day as you desire.

    Advantages

    • Manufacturer claims to deliver visible improvements that show denser, firmer skin in just 2 weeks.
    • Product is formulated to improve the tone of your skin and smoothen the appearance of cellulites.
    • Contains a combination of ingredients that are known to enhance fluid and toxin drainage, and improve cellular metabolism which should facilitate excretion of unwanted fats that cause cellulites to appear.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains fragrance ingredients, denatured alcohol, artificial colorants, and butylene glycol, all of which are well known to cause severe skin irritations for all skin types which makes this product not recommended for use by people with sensitive and problematic skin.
    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin that affects healthy brain and nerve functioning at toxic levels.
    • There is nothing in the formula that will make your skin show longer lasting improvements that last for months, if not years.

    Final Verdict

    Nivea Skin Firming and Toning Gel-Cream contains a very limited lineup of ingredients but one which, nevertheless, can cause improvements as to how your cellulites appear. Albeit, improvements are negligible or, unnoticeable at best. Besides there is hardly any ingredient in the formula that will help your skin benefit from longer-lasting results.

    Disadvantages

    • Full product ingredient list is not openly disclosed by the manufacturer.
    • Product contains menthol, an ingredient that is well-known to cause skin irritation and swelling.
    • Product seems to have limited availability, showing up as “out of stock” in several online websites, including on Clarins websites.
    • Products such as these generally have little bearing on the appearance and status of your cellulites, providing negligible effects, if there are any benefit that can be derived, which often go unnoticed.

    Final Verdict

    Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control sounds like it has come across a significant breakthrough in cellulite reduction. Without an open discussion of how it works or, at least a full disclosure of ingredients, however, it’s just hard to tell. At the end of the day, a product is only as good as how your skin interacts with it.

    Product Introduction

    Body Merry Cellulite Defense, US $22, is here to help you improve the appearance of cellulites and prevent them from manifesting even before they’ve started making an appearance on your fat storages, most notably your thighs, buttocks legs and underarms. This product more specifically commits to deliver the following benefits that, together, will fade the appearance of cellulites.

    • Deliver the naturally fluid draining properties of caffeine and green tea extract to open the veins in skin underneath cellulite affected areas so that fluids can flow and trapped fat cells may be pushed out to become reintegrated into the bloodstream to be flushed out later.
    • Reinforce the surface layer of your skin so that skin becomes tighter and thicker, making cellulites appear less visible over time with continued use.
    • Relieve inflammation with the cooling sensation of menthol.

    This product is formulated by Body Merry, a company committed to pack only whats good for your skin, whatever beauty budget you got.

    Ingredient Lists

    Body Merry Cellulite Cream
    • Caffeine, Cayenne and Green Tea Extract: Boost your skin’s antioxidant protection but, more importantly activates local microcirculation so that the veins underneath application areas open wide, causing a fluid rush that plumps the affected area and makes the surface of your skin appear smoother and denser.
    • Retinol: Enhances collagen production which provides sufficient material to strengthen and tighten your skin, practically making your cellulites appear much less noticeable with a thicker, better fortified skin.
    • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: Strengthens your skin to reinforce its protective function, making your skin thicker in the process and hiding your cellulites.
    • Algae Extract: Deep moisturizes your skin while also fortifying the outer layers to promote better protection.

    Directions

    Body Merry Cellulite Defense must be applied twice daily, that is, once in the morning and once again at night, over freshly cleansed skin only so that the beneficial ingredients which the product is formulated can seep through deeper and more easily. Apply this cream also before a workout or, to relieve tired legs.

    Advantages

    • Lightweight, easy to spread on and blend into your skin.
    • 90-day manufacturer guarantee offer is in effect on all Body Merry products.
    • Manufacturer claims that this product is good for use on all skin types.
    • Product provides multiple functions that include protection, correction and refortification.

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin that can damage your brain and nerve health wen toxic levels are reached.
    • Product contains retinol, a photosensitizing ingredient that, with long term application, can cause your skin to get more easily damaged when exposed to UV.
    • Product contains menthol and fragrance ingredients which are well recognized to be highly irritating to any skin type, making this product not recommended for use on sensitive and problematic skin types.

    Final Verdict

    Body Merry Cellulite Defense may provide you with an easy solution to correct your cellulites and protect you from acquiring more. However, like other firming creams, cellulites will never be completely banished by applying this or any other similar product solely, that is, without making appropriate changes to your lifestyle and electing to get a proper cellulite reduction procedure.

    • Product is formulated with toxic ingredients that include phenoxyethanol, a neurotoxin, and PEG, a chemical with strong affinity to 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogen

    Final Verdict

    Bliss Fabulips Instant Lip Plumper is made with a formula that clearly outperforms most other products that also claim to be able to moisture your lips and give it an instant boost at the same time. Unfortunately, the benefits are cancelled out by the many disadvantages that this product poses to the health of skin on your lips, and your health and well-being in general.

    Ever since we have been made aware of the harsh effects that the sun’s UV rays may have on our skin. And since we were little kids, we have been told, time and time again, about the importance of sunscreen. And yet, many of us still don’t apply this basic knowledge that we have been made aware of.

    If you wish to avoid early signs of aging like sun spots, wrinkles, fine lines and skin dryness, the best thing that you have in your skin care arsenal is no other than a facial sunscreen. But what are the best sunscreens for the face? Below are some of the top rated sunscreens that you can use this season:

    1.La Roche-Posay Anthelios Face Sunscreen

    La Roche-Posay Anthelios Face Sunscreen

    La Roche- Posay Anthelios sunscreen contains an SPF of 60 and a combination of both UVA and UVB filters that will provide the user a broad-spectrum protection from the sun. What makes it a great sunscreen for the face is that it is 100% oil-free and offers a dry-touch texture that will maintain your skin’s natural look and glow. It also won’t cause any breakouts as the cream can absorb pore-clogging oil even when exposed to heat and humidity.

    Lastly, it has an antioxidant compound that will protect the skin from possible signs of aging.

    Price: $19.99

    2.Solvaderm’s Dermaxsol

    Solvaderm’s Dermaxsol

    When looking for a skin care product, opt for one that can do double duty—just like Solvaderm’s Dermaxsol. It works both as a moisturizer and a facial sunscreen. With an SPF of 30 and a blend of the most hydrating ingredients, it is considered to be one of the best sunscreens for the face as it can keep the skin nourished and well hydrated while preventing it from sunburn. It also has a sheer waterproof formula which allows it to be quickly absorbed by the skin, achieving a matte finish and a smooth and soft feel.

    Price: $24.99

    Buy @ Solvaderm.com

    3. Neutrogena Oil-Free Sunscreen

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Sunscreen

    The advanced sunscreen solution from Neutrogena provides the skin a Helio plex technology broad-spectrum sun protection and an SPF of 110. More than sun protection, the sunscreen also contains skin conditioners that hydrates and replenishes the skin. Last but not the least, the lotion is lightweight and absorb-able, giving the skin a non-greasy feel and fresh look.

    Price: $10.42

    Buy @ Amazon.com

    4.Sun Bum Sunscreen Stick

    Sun Bum Sunscreen Stick

    Here’s another broad spectrum and non-greasy sunscreen formula in the list. It has also been tested and approved by The Skin Cancer Foundation and is certified Gluten and PABA Free. It is also hypoallergenic and will not cause any skin irritation. It is also perfectly safe for children.

    Price: $19.99

    Buy @ Amazon.com

    5.EltaMD Facial Sunscreen

    EltaMD Facial Sunscreen

    This is a broad spectrum facial sunscreen with an SPF of 46. The formula contains hyaluronic acid and niacinamide which promotes a healthy and young looking skin. This oil-free sunscreen does not cause sensitivity and skin irritation and won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.

    The sun is at its most powerful (and harmful) during the summer season, and that’s why it is most important for you now more than ever to protect your skin from it. So choose your weapon from the list of the top rated sunscreens that we have provided above and give your skin the protection it needs!

    Stylish is good but stylish and practical, even better! So while, the thick of summer is just beginning to unfold, you have to keep your wardrobe practical enough to survive through the following season and the new year in fashion as runways get busier in the next couple of months.

    Here are 7 styles you’ll want to wear this summer which you undoubtedly will continue to find more stylish uses for beyond the rest of 2016:

    1. Cold Shoulder Knits: Laser cut holes on shoulders are a big hit this season whether these are on blouses or full length dresses. These pieces can be a great wear even in colder months when layered with cover ups on top. Choose versatile pieces that you can pair up with warmer footwear like boots in winter.

    Cold Shoulder Knits

    2. One-off Oversized Knits with Jeggings: Wear your knits in 80s aerobics fashion. Let one side of your loose and long knits drop on one shoulder. Pair with tight skinnies or jeggings for that subtly sexy effect. This get up is great for cold summer nights and will definitely be great on you when you sit by the fireplace sipping a cup of hot chocolate on chilly winter nights.

    One-off Oversized Knits with Jeggings

    3. Cropped Trousers: This pair of bottoms can keep you cool and stylish in summer. If you choose well, you can very well still make good use of these pants in colder months when used with your high cut or knee-length boots to keep the cropped length hidden and you, warm.

    Cropped Trousers

    4. Square Pants: This pair is a cool way to sport up your look in summer. Pair with trainers and a simple top and you’ll rock style.You can keep using the ensemble for the coming colder season, and you can bet your square pants will keep you looking stylish even when layered with scarves and coats.

    Makeup, and the beauty industry in general has been criticized for its seemingly endless tide of “innovative” products designed to make women “more beautiful”. Well, even women have very different opinions about the subject. Some loathe makeup for making women feel inferior of their natural selves. On the contrary, some women think that makeup is empowering.

    “I Heart Makeup”

    Beyonce once said, “That’s one of the things I love about makeup. You can change your whole attitude by just doing your eyeliner or lipstick differently.” Highlighters are making our skin glow in previously unthinkable levels —ain’t that another reason to love makeup? However, not everyone gets liquid highlighters.

    Here are top 5 mistakes people make when using liquid highlighters that you shouldn’t do when you apply one on your face:

    1. Place The Liquid Highlighter Under Their Concealer

    Place The Liquid Highlighter Under Their Concealer

    Some people make the grave mistake of topping their liquid highlighter with a concealer. That will turn your highlighter dull so, what is the point of putting on liquid highlighter then? The proper sequence is: foundation-concealer-liquid highlighter.

    2. Apply Liquid Highlighter All Over Their Faces

    Apply Liquid Highlighter All Over Their Faces

    Liquid highlighters and powder highlighters don’t work the same way. Liquid highlighters are there to help frame your face, not necessarily to highlight your best features. Have a set plan before applying your liquid highlighter. Choose the highest points of your face to set it: cheeks, eyebrows, forehead bridge of nose and chin.

    3. Applying Liquid Highlighter With Their Bare Hands

    Applying Liquid Highlighter With Their Bare Hands

    As with any other part of your makeup routine, you can’t possibly achieve great makeup without great tools to blend them in. Use a combination of medium brush and beauty sponge to set the liquid highlighter on your forehead, cheeks, and chin. For your eyebrows and bridge of the nose, use an angle brush.

    4. Applying Liquid Highlighter Without Priming

    Applying Liquid Highlighter Without Priming

    A liquid highlighter can easily slip out of place. Use a concealer in the same shade as your foundation to line the areas where you plan to put your liquid highlighter. Doing so will help keep your highlighter in place.

    Related: How To Do Soft Cut Crease Makeup For Kitty Cat Look With Smokey Eyes

    5. Neglecting to Set a Powder or Cream Highlighter on Top for Added Radiance

    Neglecting to Set a Powder

    Your liquid highlighter is often very subtle, creating a natural-like glow to make problematic areas of your skin appear brighter and younger. At the same time, it creates a flattering and appealing framing for your face.

    However, it cannot give you a full glow-on look in the same way that a highlighter cream or powder can. If you are going for that kind of shimmer, don’t forget to use another product to top off your cover. Powder highlighter is made for your entire face but, you can use it to highlight specific areas only. Use the appropriate brush to apply.

    CONCLUSION

    Makeup can only be good as the technique that you are using. Make the most out of your beauty stash by knowing the proper way to use every weapon in your arsenal.

    Product Introduction

    Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer, US $8 for 16.8 fl. oz. is a topical cellulite solution that helps improve the appearance of bumpy, dimply skin. More specifically, this product promises to deliver the following skin benefits:

    Deliver collagen and elastin to help improve skin elasticity and firmness

    • Moisturize your skin to plump it and relieve it from dryness
    • Give your skin a tighter feeling and appearance that evens out your skin tone

    Jergens is a global brand managed by Kao USA, and which has been around since the turn of the century.

    Ingredient Lists

    Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer
    • Glycerin: A powerful emollient that effectively moisturizes and plumps up your skin; also leaves a silky feel on the surface of your skin to relieve it from a dry, dehydrating feeling
    • Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) Extract: Acts as a protective antioxidant, and has anti-inflammatory properties that calms and soothes multiple signs of skin irritation
    • Centella Asiatica Extract and Withania Somnifera Root Extract: Rich in amino acids, antioxidants and fatty acids, among other beneficial components, this ancient healing plant delivers anti-aging benefits that revives your skin’s youthful health and glow
    • Hydrolyzed Elastin and Collagen: Supply your skin with additional materials that are easily assimilated by your skin cells to be utilized for various skin repair and rejuvenation processes

    Directions

    Use Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer on cellulite-affected areas, giving your skin a vigorous massage to help stimulate better circulation and work in the product more thoroughly into your skin. Apply the product day and night, as frequently and as often as you want to, on freshly cleansed skin.

    Advantages

    • Product contains deeply hydrating ingredients that have the power to plump up your skin to make it appear firmer and less bumpy
    • Formula makes your skin feel tighter
    • Product provides additional doses of collagen and elastin that your skin can utilize for various skin healing and improvement processes, and are capable of strengthening moisture bond
    • Product provides powerful antioxidant protection

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains petrolatum and mineral oil which can clog your pores and start an infection
    • Product contains fragrance ingredients and butylene glycol which are well-known severe skin irritants, making this product not recommended for any skin type but, most especially not for use of people with hyper sensitive and problematic skin
    • Formula cannot address the root causes of cellulites, which are structural in nature, and, therefore, cannot resolve your cellulites beyond possible temporary plumping

    Final Verdict

    Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer is well formulated to deliver a deeply moisturizing and temporarily plumping effect on your skin that immediately relieves your skin of dryness and flakiness right on product contact. However, of course your purpose for picking up a firming lotion is so that you can improve the appearance of your cellulites. Although there can’t possibly be any topical product that can do that, some, particularly the ones that contain ingredients that can expand your veins, can give serious skin plumping that can last for a longer period of time.

    Directions

    Use Pond’s Gold Radiance Precious Youth Serum together with your morning and evening skin care regimens, following a cleanse and tone. Use the product under makeup in the morning, and under your thicker creams at night.

    • Product contains niacinamide, one of the three most powerful antioxidants you want to have in your skin care products, the other two being Vitamin C and Vitamin E
    • Helps reduce dark spots and improve the appearance of wrinkles
    • product claims to restore your skin’s health and youthful radiance with regular, day and night use

    Disadvantages

    • Product contains denatured alcohol, synthetic colorants, butylene glycol and fragrance ingredients that can easily irritate and make skin breakout, making this product not ideal for use of people with sensitive and problematic skin
    • Product contains polyethylene glycols (PEG) which runs the risk of combining with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogen
    • Product containsparabens, toxic preservatives proven time and again to be capable of disrupting normal hormone functions which, in turn gets in the way of the proper functioning of several body mechanisms involving critical body organs
    • Product contains potassium hydroxide, which can cause permanent skin damages, including discoloration, scarring and burns, from the moment it gets into contact with your skin

    Final Verdict

    Pond’s Gold Radiance Precious Youth Serum contains just one ingredient that should matter in your skin care must-haves, Niacinamide. This ingredient can help your skin significantly become healthier like never before but, at the cost of possibly permanently damaging your skin right on contact and also with long-term use. With a variety of products available, it can be guaranteed that most basic moisturizers can perform so much better than this product.

    Product Introduction

    Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream, US $11.95 for 40 g, is an anti-wrinkle cream made with botanicals as its primary ingredients. Led by ginger, cherry, and bilberry extracts, this product is committed to deliver the following benefits for your skin:

    Correct and prevent wrinkles and fine lines

    • Improve skin elasticity and firmness
    • Boost your skin’s antioxidant protection
    • Deeply hydrate and plump up your skin for a dewier, softer and smoother effect
    • Facilitate faster skin renewal and rejuvenation

    Garnier is a label managed by L’Oreal, one of the biggest names in the personal care and beauty industry.

    Ingredient Lists

    Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream
    • Ginger: Has natural anti-inflammatory properties that helps calm and soothe your skin from irritation and swelling, as it also promotes a better toned, better protected, and more radiant skin
    • Bilberry extract: Enriched with powerful antioxidants that help correct and prevent wrinkles and other signs of skin aging, while also smoothening out your skin and restoring its elasticity
    • Cherry essence: Has natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that calms, revitalizes and protects your skin all at the same time
    • Glycolic acid: Gives your skin a mild exfoliation that, in turn, stimulates higher collagen production volumes and, therefore, facilitates faster skin regeneration and repairs
    • Wheat proteins: Tightens your pores, leaving your skin looking smoother, even toned and more flawless, as it also helps keep the moisture locked in your skin

    Directions

    Use Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream with your morning and evening skin care routines, following a fresh cleanse and toning. Massage product onto your skin to pack it in and better incorporate it into skin on your face, neck and chest.

    Advantages

    • Product has been labelled by manufacturer to be hypoallergenic and suited for use on all skin types, including on sensitive skin
    • Multifunctional product that covers the basic facets a good moisturizer must cover, that is, moisturizing and antioxidant-enriched
    • Product efficacy research confirms:
    • Fine lines visibly reduced by 95 per cent
    • Wrinkles noticeably improved by 93 per cent
    • Skin elasticity and firmness apparent by 93 per cent

    Disadvantages

    • Beyond moisture and antioxidants, this product does not contain any other ingredient that can address wrinkles and give results that last
    • Can leave skin oily and greasy when the prevailing climate is hot, and may therefore be best used to relieve dry skin types but not highly recommended for people with oily skin
    • Manufacturer fails to openly disclose full list of ingredients in this product’s formula

    Final Verdict

    Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti Ageing Cream may have a botanical philosophy going on with this product. It isn’t hard to see, however, that this product’s formula falls short in many areas when it comes to getting to even the bare basics of what you must want to derive from an anti-wrinkle cream. This product does not include ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid or, retinols that would have provided longer-term skin benefits. This product can pass as a moisturizer but, perhaps, not when you want more for your aging skin.

    • Product contains BHT, a suspected carcinogen which has already been correlated with the development of cancer cells in mice

    Final Verdict

    Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Night Crème is formulated with a complex that provides short-term and long-term benefits to your skin — all under US $20. The potential irritations you may get when using this product, however, ultimately places the burden of discerning the effectivity of this product on how your skin responds.

    Product Introduction

    VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum, US $100 for 1 fl. oz., combines the skin renewing power of glycolic acid with a host of other botanically derived ingredients to deliver the following product commitments:

    Promote enhanced skin elasticity and firmness as it also tightens your skin

    • Improves better microcirculation by opening up veins underneath so that more blood and nutrients can flow through to nourish your skin
    • Gently exfoliate your skin to stimulate raised collagen production and faster regeneration and turnover
    • Reinvigorates skin cells to hasten critical functions, including repair and rejuvenation
    • Better protects your skin from future damage by boosting its antioxidant levels
    • Makes fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes appear less visible
    • Regenerate new skin so that a new, undamaged skin layer can take its place

    VMV Hypoallergenics has close to a century of experience formulating products that are guaranteed to be non-irritating, non-comedogenic and won’t hurt even the most sensitive skin types.

    Ingredient Lists

    VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum
    • Glycolic Acid (0.3%): Gently sloughs off the top layer of your skin so while also stimulating the development of newer, younger skin in the process, and forcing a turnover to happen at more rapid rates
    • Green Tea and Phytic Acid: Loaded with antioxidants, these ingredients boost your skin’s protection from free radicals which, when left unneutralized, can catalyze a series of chemical reactions that can lead to permanent cell damage or death
    • Kinetin: Also a rich source of antioxidants, it helps restore skin health and vitality
    • Manilkara Multinervis Leaf Extract: Helps restore and maintain your skin’s firmness and youthful bounce by regulating elastin and promoting better skin synthesis
    • Soy Protein Phthalate: Provides instant skin plumping that immediately makes wrinkles and fine lines appear plumper and feel smoother from the surface

    Directions

    Use VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum by slowly integrating it with your evening skincare routine to allow your skin to warm up to the formula and avoid severe irritation and sensitivity. If your skin allows, it is best to use this product twice daily.

    Advantages

    • Product does not contain artificial fragrances and colorants but which, unfortunately, compromises the color and smell of this product
    • Product is labelled by the manufacturer as a validated hypoallergenic, meaning that the product has been clinically tested to not cause any notable irritation on any skin type
    • Non-comedogenic and non-drying
    • Formula is strongly research-based

    Disadvantages

    • Contains ingredients that are likely to cause severe skin irritations, such as butylene glycol
    • Product contains phthalates which studies have linked to asthma, obesity, diabetes neuro-developmental problems, ADHD, infertility, and breast cancer, among others
    • Product bears a hefty price tag

    Final Verdict

    VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum provides a rational combination of ingredients that mostly respond to the immediate rejuvenation needs of your skin. Unfortunately, other than the regular exfoliating function of glycolic acid, it is hard to tell how this product can redound to benefits that may have more longer-lasting benefits for your skin.
